SOURCE: my emerson microwave #mw8999rd shoots out fire from a silver piece of cardboard thats on the righthand inside of my microwave oven. whats with that?

There is electrical problem in your microwave heating circuit. This is a fire hazard and you should stop using this microwave and unplug from the outlet. This is not something you can fix and the fuse does not protect your system anymore. The best choice is to purchase a new one and throw this away.

I had a power surge in my house and my EMERSON 900W MICROWAVE OVEN MW8999RD control pad is not working. The lightbulb works and the tray spins slowly when I open the microwave door. However, nothing

I hope it's still under warranty. Think about getting a replacement, and about next time: Get a surge protection device between the oven and the wall plug! I have suffered from power surges in my house as well, and a surge protector is the only cure.

I have a emerson mw8999rd that started crackling and sparking what cause this and can it be repair?

Sounds bad. Most likley caused by the magnetron tube arcing to the waveguide. Repair may be possible, but would be expensive (more than the microwave is worth). And if the arcing was severe or occurred for more that just 2 or 3 seconds, the waveguide may be damaged, and that is unrepairable.

It's probably a failed magnetron or loose connection at the "FA" terminal of the magnetron.

Emerson mw8999rd microwave sparked now doesn't work

The magnetron has failed and is the heart of the microwave oven, unless this is a warranty situation, go out and buy a new one cheaper in the long run.
