What is your amp draw? You could just have a bad I/O board.

replace 3 door switches, very cheap fix. bout $2.50 per switch and all you need is a screwdriver.

there are little switches inside that the door hits when you close it. open both side panels then open and close the door. you'll see them in the upper left. there primary, secondary, and monitor. PSM. they either broke or something need adjusted. easy and cheap fix. you could take the leads off and jump them until you get switches. but they are a safety feature so do at your own risk.

James 938 hit the nail on the head. These ovens are very good and tend to be maintenance free, however, when it does have a problem, it is an unusual one. Good luck and let us know how it does.

This might help you out:

It's a service manual for the TurboChef NGC Tornado.

Pay particular attention to pages 15 through 19. It shows you how to edit menus and to reset everything.

Good luck!

If the temperature reached at it operating temperature and oven display doesn't showing how much time left for ready screen then most probably its IO board gone.
I have seen many cases like this, and replacing IO Board fixed the problem.

There are 2 hv transformers. If you take the right side cover off, they are towards the top of the unit. I think you need to take the top cover off, as well, to replace them. If you google turbochef tornado, there are very detailed repair manuals available for free. They shouldn't be hard to replace yourself. You might need to replace the capacitor (s) too. If it won't stand up on its own without falling over then good chance that is shot too. Remember to take a picture before you take everything apart, so you know how it goes back together. Remember to unplug!!! :). These are pretty easy to work on yourself. A service call will cost you at least $500 to replace a fairly cheap part. I learned the hard way. Below is a pic of a transformer, capacitor and mag. They were all bad. Eventually a bad mag will ruin your transformer and capacitor. 8ac8c2ce-4199-46ea-9981-2a2ee5dc9570.jpg c10f5a3f-ab72-45d5-94a0-8faed3674ea8.jpg 1f8362be-530d-497c-83d4-1ba6d05c9557.jpg

take top cover off. It's about in the center. install a new one. pretty simple part to change. of course always unplug oven first.

What jim said is right. plus clean the front vent. take off bottom front panel and clean all the little round holes. also if its dirty inside everything runs hotter(which makes the EC get warm faster) and dirt gets on the little wire(it's about 4" long coming from the main 40 pin connector0 that monitors the EC temp(clean it). sometimes the fan starts to get weak and doesn't cool properly. also, unplug oven, take side panel off and clean it as well. there are vents on it that get clogged. while it's unplugged clean the inside. I use a paint brush and shop van. just be careful not to hit wires or knock wires off. this will all help a bit but that fan will still run a lot anyway.

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 valueicon1.png or nothing comes then.
9 half value means(one magnetron is workingicon1.png
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.
