The waveguide cover will need to be replaced.

It provides critical protection for the magnetron.

You can contact Oster at the number in your owner's manual to see where you can order a new one.

If for some reason you do not have your manual, try 1-866-866-6283.

Torn wave guide

If your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced.

It provides critical protection for the magnetron.

You didn't mention your brand or model number, but since you posted under Oster, I'll assume that's it.

You can contact Oster via the information in your owner's manual or get their contact information from the dealer where you purchased the oven.

My 6 year old microwave has problem. The metal looking rectangular plate on the side inside has torn in 2. Can this be replaced? Thanks Lydia

I would advise not to use the microwave until a replacement waveguide cover is in place. The food particles and steam will contaminate and carbonize on the magnetron and aerial causing damage.
A new Waveguide cover can be purchased through the manufacturers' repair dealership or from an appliance repair shop.
Hope that helps.

Set up Oster Microwave

No, that is the "waveguide cover".

It provides very important protection for the magnetron.

And always keep it clean according to your manual's instructions.
