check the conductivity of the plastic with an ohmmeter by placing the probes an inch apart on the plastic surface. If the resistance is large or infinity, the plastic probably performs no role in stopping the microwave radiation. If so, any epoxy probably can be used to close the hole safely. Make sure you don't use too much and if possible place tape over the repair and orient the microwave so the epoxy presses against the tape while drying to prevent it from oozing into any door hinge/close mechanism. Otherwise, a piece of microwave door glass from a broken unit can ge glued over the hole and should stop the radiation. You can check for leakage with test units but be very carefuly anyway.

Unfortunately this is how most microwaves die. The Magnatron that generates the microwaves (behind the cover) overheats and charrs the insulation between the high voltage contacts.
You would be best to obtain a new unit or have it repaired,
Spares are usually available, but sometimes it is not economically feasable.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: arching microwave oven
The area that has arced needs to be cleaned thoroughly, and if the paint is affected, it will need to be sanded smooth and cleaned with alcohol.
Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.
If the rack support is charred or melted, it will need to be replaced. It's best to replace them as a set.

SOURCE: arching inside microwave
un plug it right away.
there are carbon deposit near the wave cover. the arching is coming from the magnetron to any exposed metal inside the unit or any carbon deposit since carbon is already conductive, it is sensing it as a metal.
remove and clean the interior of the microwave. polished and paint all exposed metal that you will find in the interior.
then test again the unit.
tnx 4 using fixya,

Quite often this is due to grease or food particles stuck to the inside of the oven or stuck on or behind the mica waveguide cover.
The waveguide cover is usually about the size of a playing card and often held in place by a plastic rivet.
Sometimes it is the ceiling of the oven.
Your owner's manual may address this. You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.
It can be fragile, and the metal edges of the oven behind it can be sharp, so be careful!
The cover and the metal behind it should be cleaned with a mild, non-ammonia cleaner.
If the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean.
Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart or Lowe's.
If your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced.
