That normally occurs when there is metal inside this is assuming it is coming from the inside of the cooking chamber. There should not be any metal in there as it causes a short and will burn up the magnatron in a retaliative short time.

My microwave model mv1526w when I press start it start to spark...What makes it spark and can I fix it?


It might be the appliance isn't properly grounded or it might be it is faulty or it might be there is something inside that is unsuitable.

Microwave ovens should not be operated with nothing inside and only suitable containers should be used to hold food for heating. Cups or plates with gold painted rims and metal containers and those containing metal are likely to cause a veritable electrical storm inside.

What cause sparks to shoot inside the Daewoo KOR-1B4H Microwave Oven when it is empty?


You should never run a microwave with nothing in it!! There is nowhere for the energy to go. The oven itself has a special coating that keeps the sparks from happening. Anywhere the coating is bad will arc. If it keeps arcing it will burn out the microwave generator.

Humming and sparking inside the microwave


Sounds like you have metal inside oven, and arching can happen if nothing is in there to absorb energy.

Kenmore 1200 watt sparking when warming empty plates


Unless specifically stated in the manual, you shouldn't use the microwave for warming plates. That is not it's intended use.

I suspect the microwave circuit has failed in some manner.

Reply the specific Sears model number (in the form xxx.yyyyyyyy), and I can help further.
