If it sparks inside the oven then look inside for any powder paint missing... if so discard. If you has metal shelves or tin foil then don't put metal in when on microwave setting. Some of these metal shelves are for a microwave that is also a convection oven but only in the convection oven setting.

Sparks when cooking


Make sure no metal item (forks-spoons or oven rack) is touching the outer wall of the microwave. That will cause sparks. If all that is OK then there is usually a metal fan type blade in the microwave top called a stirrer blade that may be out of place and rubbing the cavity causing sparks. Try to pin point the spark area so you know where to look for the problem. Sparks usually mean metal is touching metal somewhere.

Microwave when turn on making a noise and sparks comin from fan area?

Waveguide Cover




If the microwave is sparking or arcing the waveguide cover might be damaged and shorting out. Try removing the waveguide cover and see if the problem goes away. If there are any damaged spots in the microwave ceiling or sidewalls, repair them and paint them with microwave oven paint. Replace the waveguide cover if it is burnt or if it will not stay in place.

Microwave Oven Paint




If the microwave is sparking or arcing on the side walls the paint might have chipped causing pitting in the metal oven wall. Use microwave safe paint to touch up any bare metal spots.

Rack Support




If the microwave is sparking or arcing near one of the rack supports, remove the support, repaint any bare metal, install a new support.

My Goldstar MV-1310W microwave has sparks flying from the metal plate that's inside on the top.


Microwave ovens do not work well with exposed metal. IF you place uncoated metal in the oven, sparks will occur.
IF the interior of the oven has the metal exposed, it will cause sparking to occur.

There must be NO exposed metal inside a Microwave oven!

Sparks are coming from the bottom of the microwave


generally the microwave will only spark if there is metal on the container you are cooking with or you are operating it without anything in it. as it is that old and with all the advances they have made with microwave ovens ... if it is in the budget i would certainly suggest getting a new one

Popping and shooting sparks


Hi There!
Check behind the "Wave Guide Cover" on the inside cavity. There may be moisture or food residue behind it. Should be a cover that is plastic or Mica. Really strange that it's sparking being new. Also check that you use plates without gold or silver trimmings (Crockery or porcelein). This will also cause sparking. Remember that microwaves will always go to the first organic source in its path. The wave guide cover, if soiled, is very close to the tip of the Magnetron and will therefor result in arcing. Good Luck, JUS004

Sharp selling bad microwaves


paddy paddy paddy i want i want, bet you were spoiled as a child, never continue to use a microwave that sparks, you can only do more damage to the appliance and maybe even worse is this sparking when you use it under normal conditions, place a plastic bowl with cold water in and see if it sparks then, if not then is it something you have done, i assume you know what you can not put in a microwave if sparking occurs anyway, and its only 6 months old, is it under guarantee, then its simple, send it back and ask for free replacement SHOUT AT THE RIGHT PEOPLE DON'T WASTE TIME ON HERE
