F3: Magnetron Current Low

Fault is displayed when the current transformer

(CT) on the I/O control board does not detect

enough current. The fault is monitored when the

microwave is on during a cook cycle or self-test.

The fault is cleared from the display at the onset of

a cook cycle if the CT detects current or when the
magnetron is successfully energized in Test Mode

"F3 MAG CURR" error message,


Its a big pain in the *** issue.
IF YOU KNOW HOW TO USE CLAMP AMMETER THEN ONLY YOU CAN USE MY METHOD TO TROUBLESHOOT IT.
MAKE SURE OVEN HAS 5000V IN THE CAPACITOR.DISCHARGE THEM FIRST .
AND IF YOU DON'T KNOW THEN STOP HERE
STEPS
1. open right side pannel
2. press back key to turn off oven
3. press back and enter key simultaneously.
4. enter 9428 then press enter.You are directed to testmode.
5.put clamp ammeter on the primary wire(orange in color).The one which come from top and looping the IO board.
6.Under Displaty screen you see Word Magnetron.Press and hold the soft key to energize the magnetron.
7.Check the amperage.It should be under 14-16 Amps.
8.If its half of the value or nothing comes then.
9 half value means(one magnetron is working
10. No value means F3 fuse blown and check the cause why it blown(physically look at the transformers and the capacitors and the diodes that they didn't burnt or change their shape.
IF YES THEN REPLACE IT.

Hi, F3 mag curr. what is means and how do I fix it?


Hi,
F3 is an complex code.

Easy fix is look at the transformers and the capacitors and the diodes.If it seems that any component has changed its appearence then fix it and replace the F3 fuse(3rd one from the front).

If the magnetron is bad ,then to check that you must know how to use clamp ammeter.
let me know if you know how to use clamp meter .
I will give you the solution .

NOTE oven has 5000V in it.
make sure you dischared the capacitors.

F 3 mag error. had a bad magnetron and hv transformer. went head and changed both hv transformers,diodes,caps,magnetrons. worked for about 5 hours and its back to blowing f3 fuse. Any ideas


F3 errors can indicate a mag problem. Did you replace both mags? It can also be a door switch. If your fuses are good, you need to inspect the 2 magnetrons. If you have a burned tip on one the waveguide and waveguide cover it will need to be replaced.

How did you fix your F3 Mag Cur code?


There are 2 mags in this oven yo have to figure out which mag is bad and replace it. This can be tricky and dangerous since there is a 4800 volt cap you will have to disconnect.
