Question about Emerson MW8102SS 1100 Watts Microwave Oven
Do not use the microwave with the exposed metal surface.
What you can do is pick up some appliance touch up paint, it comes in a small plastic bottle with a brush. It looks similar to fingernail polish. It should be available at an appliance store such as Sears, Lowes, Home Depot etc.
Clean the area good and use sandpaper or steel wool if needed to make sure the area is smooth and clean. Then use the touch up paint to recoat the surface. Let dry before using the microwave oven, usually a couple hours or so.

If there is spark please do not switch on unless you have confirmed the fault. It is possible that the Magnetron is leaking and sparking to the ground. As you have mentioned it was stored, it is quite possible that insect can get into the oven and create soft spots. When you switch on these will create a short and make the voltage jump and in the long run damage the magnetron.
So Remove cover after disconnecting , check for dirt/moisture in the cabin, if so wipe clean and dry, check the magnetron and area clean and use an jet air to clean off.
Now switch the microwave power on and use a cup of water to test.
If you notice any sparks shut off as the magnetron or the main HT capacitor can be faulty. Replace with same type. If not check the waveguides within the cabin for food particles that can burn and spark, check for rust that can corrode and spark when the ceramic paint has worn out.
If there is heating without any issues, you can use the microwave safely
