Any burned material must be removed as it is CONDUCTIVE and will absorb further energy from the microwave.

Never run the microwave without adequate food/water/etc as that can cause arcing.

Popping sound coming from my panasonic NNCD997S


The following works better if done in "low light".

Put a cup of water or small bowl in the unit, close the door and turn the microwave on.

If there is anything that you can see in the cooking area, there should be sparking and it is coming from something metal, even a small piece of aluminum foil that was left behind. The thing causing the sparking needs to be removed.

If you hear the noise and it is coming from inside the area of the microwave that you cannot see then you can:

1 - Take it to a repair shop.
2 - Depending upon the cost for repair, consider buying a replacement.

If the noise is inside the machine DO NOT CONTINUE TO USE IT. Get it FIXED OR REPLACED for your own safety.

Good Luck

Microwave sparks


Look in side and make sure there is no pieces of aluminum foil or metal hidden inside. If not I would not use until you have a appliance repair person look at it.

Bulb flickers and makes an electrical spark noise but only for around 30 seconds on starting programme


Is it an electrical spark noise or is it actually sparking inside your microwave oven? Watch as you heat something. This also might appear to be the bulb flickering, when it's actually a sparking. I only know how to fix it if it's an actual spark, or what might be called "arcing." This is not supposed to happen.

Inside your microwave, there is a "cover" over the area where your bulb is. If this cover has a burned place in it, or an actual hole in it, then it's your "waveguide cover." And this is the easiest thing to repair. I myself will not attempt any electrical repair, but this waveguide cover was a breeze.

You have to purchase replacement material... Then, when the replacement material arrives, remove the wave guide cover from your microwave, trace it, cut it out and put the new one in. It is very easy to fix. Sort of like paper dolls....

Google "waveguide cover" and you're on your way! IF that's the problem....

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.

It could be a magnetron sparks to the open metal inside the m/w cavity or some broken wire on high voltage side. It is not HV transformer (when burn create a lot of smoke and bad smell). Magnetron needs to be replace.
