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.

Display shows food done within 2-3 seconds. cycle is programmed for 15 seconds heating What is causing the problem

That typically means the microwave circuit is not powering on so the oven turns itself off. Most of the time when that happens you will get an error code flashing on the bottom of the screen. If F3 MAG CURR. Look at my previous answers on fixing that

Lincoln Impinger 2 Double Conveyor oven temperature unstable

It looks like a thermostat problem, but if the thermostat had already been replaced, remain to check the valve and the pressure switches.

When the valve is defective, gas will turn off and not restart, Check and eventually replace the pressure switch , but it can also be a control problem.

Let see if I can find support and repair in your area.

I was using my oven to bake something ---when suddenly I heard a beep and saw the code F3 E2. I turned the oven off for a bit then turn it back on. the same thing happened. What does it mean. I have...

Sorry, it looks like your baking (in this oven, anyway) is over for tonight.

For Whirlpool ovens, F3 means that the main control circuit board is reading a temperature that is too high. The E2 code indicates that the temperature sensor has probably failed and needs to be replaced. It's a fairly easy fix for a service person, but you are probably not going to get the parts and/or technician before tomorrow.

Wish I had better news for you. Hopefully, it's under warranty!

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

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.

I will give you the solution .

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

My oven inside glass door exploded tonight while

Very rare, in 35 years I replace maybe 2 to 5 a year out of 1500 to 2000 repairs a year on all major appliances. Make sure you replace it with the exact glass from the manufacturer, usuing your model number. Do not replace with glass from a glass shop.
