It sounds like there may be a diode or relay on the control that has failed. This could cause both symptoms you are explaining here. In either case the control board/keymembrane would need replaced. The cost of these would be about $173.00 for parts. Unfortunatly this repair would most likely cost more than the value of the product. Sorry for the bad news.

Scratches, flaking and bare spots are fairly common, but should be addressed as soon as they arise so the corrosion will not spread and arcing does not occur.
Unplug the power cord first.
Take some mild sanding cloth or scotchbright and clean the bare and rusted areas in the microwave. Use appliance touch up paint to re-coat the surface. You can find the touch up at most anywhere that sells appliances, it comes in a plastic bottle similar in appearance to fingernail polish, yes it does have a brush inside.
Let it dry per the instructions on the bottle or 24 hours if not specified.

The electrical burning smell will be the Hi-Voltagetransformer inside the microwave. Along with the transformer you will also needto replace the capacitor. It couldbe a leaking high voltage cable (electric arching) bad insulator, if it's moreof an electronic component burning smell, it could be an overheating component,in both cases you should have it checked by a professional technician.Hope this will help you. Good Luck.
