If the sparks are happening on the inside of the microwave's cooking area while you are cooking, then make sure you clean the inner surfaces really well. Be sure to remove any cooked on food particles that may have splashed up during cooking.
If the cleaning does not work, you may need to replace the waveguide cover. Click on the following Youtube video link for an instructional video on the process:
If the sparks are coming from somewhere other that the cooking area, then your unit may need more significant electrical repairs or service.
Thank you very much and good luck.

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