This is my first time using the turbo oven, I turned on the timer and temperature. After a few minutes I decided to turn the temperature higher by 15 degrees, the electricity just cut off from the main. I tried again and the same thing happened. Can anyone tell me what should I do? It is not a new oven, so I cannot send to the dealer to check on it.

Anytime something trips a circuit breaker or a fuse, it means the mains are being overloaded by whatever you have plugged in. There may be a short circuit in the oven wiring-something as simple as a crimped wire could be causing your problem.

First and most important-unplug this appliance from the mains and DO NOT plug it back in until someone with serious electrical handy-person skills has it apart to find the fault, it's not safe as it is now-could cause a fire.

If there is a small appliance repair service in your town you would be well served to have one of their technicians look at the oven. It won't cost you nearly as much as a fire would.


If the tech tells you there is nothing wrong with the oven, then you really need to get a licensed electrician in as soon as possible to find the problem in the wiring on that particular circuit. Again, you could be looking at a serious fire hazard, so don't delay this. Consider it an important holiday gift to you and your loved ones.

My dad just passed away and left me a Farberware Turbo Convection Oven. The book is no longer in print and he didn't have one. Can I use microwave-plastic dishes and my Corning and Anchor Hocking glass in it?


I have spent about 20 hours on the web writing Farberware and their publishing site, and book is no longer printed. Any help on how to use and what dishes to use with it, how to calculate baking times, how to even run it is deeply appreciated.

I am not familiar with this device, but if it's not a microwave do not use plastic in it. Corningware and glass vessels should be fine. Looks like you will have to experiment to see how to work it. Start with simple things that are hard to ruin, a roast chicken, for example. (01/08/2010)

Thanks Olive for trying. Anchor Hocking microwave bakeware is just fine if the convection oven has a fan and does not go over 425 degrees F.

Just found that today on the web. Still looking for help as well as Olive's reply, much thanks all.

Turbo Oven Tips

I have a Farberware oven that I have been using for years, and love it! I use it for everything I bake except a turkey (too large). You have to lower the temp 75 degrees lower than what the recipe calls for, but never lower than 300 degrees. I bake great cakes, cookies, roasts, etc.

I always search yard sales, estate sales, etc. to find these ovens, and now I have the one I use and 2 spares-just in case. The plus to these is that the kitchen doesn't heat up, because you are using turbo air instead of the heating elements used in regular ovens. DO NOT put plastic in them, but metal, and glass is fine. Remember, it is an oven, and you use it just like a regular oven, but with less heat, and the time factor is less also. If a cake recipe calls for 30 minutes bake time, check your cake at about 22 minutes to see if it is done. Each oven varies as well as the item you are baking. Hope this was helpful. (01/10/2010)

Dear Friend,

Am I to assume the model # of your Farberware Turbo Convection oven is # 460? If so, the following link has a photo and a price for one, which I also assume has a manual By Mrs. Marshall

I bought a "Turbo Oven, Cook the Aeromatic Way" machine years ago. Just rediscovered it in a cabinet. Does anyone have any favorite recipes or comments, things to watch out for, or praise for this unit or style of cooking?



Turbo Oven Tips

If you know the manufacturer you can either write them or look online for their website. I've had a lot of luck with this method. Also, go to a recipe website, such as and put Turbo Oven in the search space. It works for crockpots so it may work for your oven. (07/23/2005)
