The magnetron probably overheated, blowing the thermal cutout / thermal fuse / thermostat mounted on it.

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.

Your problem is due to the "magnetron" arcing to the wave guide within the microwave. Picture someone arc-welding stuff together inside the microwave casing, that's essentially what's happening. It is a fire hazard and you should stop using the microwave immediately. As far as I know, there isn't a recall on that particular model (though there was on another similar Kenmore/Whirlpool model) so if it's out of warranty, you're out of luck.

Yes it just will not cook or defrost very evenly. It is not dangerous however.
Probably the motor or gears that make the turntable go are worn or burnt out.

Will need to pull apart to check....common failure with magnatron fuse....but could be magnatron, capaciter, diode. sugg to have a tech look at....if your not able to check, also call manufacturer, sometimes will cover.
