The mag's only activate while in cook cycle, it will be hot as normal with toasted subs that are cold in the center.
AMP draw the Mag's and ohm the Mag thermal couples

F3 mag current


well...seems that you have an early warning of a possible failure of a major component. Is this unit still under warranty, by chance?

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.

What does f3 mag mean on the display?


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

F5 - Mag Temp


Hi. this is a control fault. the board has lost the ability to communicate its commands to the temp relay. the sensor is also not working. Due to this malfunction, the control board cant regulate the temperature correctly and you will have to replace the board and temp sensor and relay in order to restore this oven to optimal performance.

Please rate and god bless:)

F3 Mag Curr. on Turbochef Tornado


Hello. Interesting coincidence, but that error code is for the magnetron/microwave part of the toaster. You will need to have it serviced by someone familiar with the unit, it could be easy and reasonable, if just a fuse blew, but not likely. If the fuse blew, it is 20amps, so something took it out. Call turbo chef, they will get you to the closest servicer, may be able to help you on the phone.

F3 errors can indicate a mag problem. Check your fuses first, 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 will need to be replaced. I usually replace the entire system at a cost to the customer of $1500.00
