It sounds like what you are describing is called a "waveguide cover". You can purchase a replacement from a local parts supplier, or on-line at www.repairclinic.com. It is very easy to replace.

Microwave insert damaged


It should fine provided the magnetron does not start arcing, anything metal inside will cause issues if exposed.

My emerson microwave #mw8999rd shoots out fire from a silver piece of cardboard thats on the righthand inside of my microwave oven. whats with that?


There is electrical problem in your microwave heating circuit. This is a fire hazard and you should stop using this microwave and unplug from the outlet. This is not something you can fix and the fuse does not protect your system anymore. The best choice is to purchase a new one and throw this away.

My microwave just started to arc. Is the waveguide cover the metal piece inside the oven? Should I try to remove it to clean both sides with steel wool?


No the wave guide is usually a porous material that almost looks like a light colored cardboard piece. Sound as if the stirrer plate is waht you are seeing. Make sure M/W is clean inside completly. Any build up of grease can cause this. Also make sure to check for chipped areas and if there are use an appliance touch up to cover the bare metal areas. A good cleaning will usually take care of the arcing tho.

Arcing inside microwave


unless you are familiar with these, leave it alone. Over time small particles of food become carbonized inside the oven, hence the electrical display. the solution is to clean it after every use.

What is the cardboard cover inside my microwave for?


It may not be cardboard - it may be a material called mica which is located over where the magnetron is located in the unit. This is a protective cover and if it is what I think it is, do not remove under any circumstances, otherwise you may render the microwave unsafe to use.
