There are some times when it is ok to use metallic stuff in a microwave. This is probably one of them. But you won't get the manufacturer to agree. Metal concentrates the microwave energy making a strong enough local electric field to cause sparks and heat. Usually burns that spot. Do you have one of those popcorn cookers for microwaves? Works by heating a special pad in the bottom just right.
What the manufacturer is saying in the warning is:
Don't sue us if you use metal in this oven and something goes wrong.

Micro does not turn on without external pressure


Likely the door latch microswitch. My micro/convection oven has 4 of these, and they do go bad. I've had to replace two of the switches in 4 years.

Microwave sparks


If it sparks inside the oven then look inside for any powder paint missing... if so discard. If you has metal shelves or tin foil then don't put metal in when on microwave setting. Some of these metal shelves are for a microwave that is also a convection oven but only in the convection oven setting.

When micro wave oven is in use, I can feel air coming from the door. is it leaking micro waves?


Not likely if the door seals are intact, clean, and the door is latched. The pin-holed screen that you can see through stops the microwave energy. Hope this helps!

I have a Corningware MW-A-10 Microwave Browner which I have never used - could I use it in a conventional / thermofan oven?


No. The bottom of this utensil is coated in tin oxide. It is not recommended for use in any appliance other than a microwave. Tin oxide (SnO) is flammable and particles may contaminate your food. It is suggested that you use the MW-A-10 only in the microwave, or look for a different CorningWare piece that is not in the MW series.
