Question about Emerson Microwave Ovens
The basis of the claim "you cannot put anything made of metal in a microwave" is based on the fact that metal:
a) reflects microwaves;
b) it will acquired a electrical charge that can arch to the grounded chassis.
Somehow, your door is no longer grounded to the chassis and so, gets a charge that arches to the chassis. Check the door for conductivity to the chassis and ground to the chassis any part of it that is currently insulated.
