Emerson MW8102SS - Sparks and No Heat

I have had this for a couple of years. The other I was heating something up and head some loud buzzing and sparks. From looking inside there is a silver plate on the right hand side that now has some black marks on it and a bubble above on the plastic. 
Is this something I should check for a replacement part or just get a new one.  Otherwise it's in like new shape. 
thanks,

    Not necessarily. If a bit of food splashes onto that plate, it may get superheated and burn a hole through that emitter diffuser lens and ruin it. I'm still looking for a new lens.

The magnetron tube which makes the microwaves is behind that cover plate, and it has gone bad. It is a replaceable part, but it's not worth the cost. Part and labor would be more than a new oven. It's time to treat yourself to a new oven.

It runs but does not heat. last nite used the speed defrost now it won't heat for anything made a noise while on speed defrost


sounds like the magnetron may be gone on it. this creates the heat. if the unit is older, it's not worth repairing, but if newer, check you manual for the warranty. some mags have 3-5 years warranty.

Buzzing noise and flashing


Some units have a silica plate covering the waveguide opening. If it get burn spots on it, it'll do that. Remove the plate and try the unit. If it's OK, go to your MW repair shop and order a new plate.

Remember... always cover your food...
