Question about Sharp Microwave Ovens
often this is due to grease or food particles stuck somewhere in the
cavity of the oven or stuck on or behind the waveguide cover.
The area will first have to be cleaned and sanded smooth and dried thoroughly.
If the cavity metal of the oven is cracked or split, you can use a small amount of steel-based epoxy such as JB-WELD to patch the crack or hole.
Once that dries thoroughly, you can sand it very smooth.
Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.
If your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced. It provides important protection for the magnetron.

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.
