Question about GE JVM1190 Microwave Oven

GE JVM1190WY 003 Microwave Convection sparks

I have owned this microwave/convection oven for several years without any problems. However, I noticed a spark inside today and found that the rack inside has a small place on the side where the coating seems to have been scratched. At the same place inside the oven, I found that the wall is scratched pretty deep. This is where the spark was coming from. My question is whether there is any way to repair these or is the oven a total loss? Or can I use it with the wall scratched (without the rack)?
Thanks.

The problem that you are having is that the magnetron inside the microwave is shorting out to ground and it will find the shortest path to reach whatever has metal in it. Replacing the magnetron will solve your problem altogether and you need not do anything else different and continue using your metal racks.
