Quite often this is due to grease or food particles stuck to the inside of the oven or stuck on or behind the waveguide cover.

The waveguide cover is usually about the size of a playing card and often held in place by a plastic rivet.

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.

My Daewoo microwave is model KOC-9Q1T/KOC-9Q1TSL I notice that the plastic frame around the top of the door is wrinkled, as if it has melted. I have photos of this if you need them. Please let me know 1....

Plastic will melt but the door frame is metal and will not. So there is no safety issue here, just looks.
One could replace the door assembly if required. I would leave the door open after convection cooking to let the heat escape without heat build up causing the plastic to mishape.

Rectuangular shaped part of microwave ignited

oops, never run a m/wave with no load (empty)
Try to clean around the area that sparked (if it has combusted plastic then you need new parts) as when empty a m/wave energy will tend to focus around any particles remaining (bits of food). There is possibility it has damaged the main components (magnatron) and this poss renders it bejond repair unless unit is a very expensive one or commercial.
Best bet is to put something in it (water or potato etc) and try it again, get ready to turn off at wall if sparking happens
