What's sparking... is it by the Magnatron window... or the carousel?...
If there is a carousel... take it out...
if its by the magnatron window,,, then...houston... we have a problem...
might be contamination... and that may require opening up the unit... sorry...
hopefully it's only something floating around in there that's causing the arc...

LG under cabinet microwave (LMV2073ST) overheated. Now no power to unit.

There may be a fuse inside.

Always put a microwave back together to test it. A mobile telephone in the vicinity will also check a microwave for leaks.

My GE stainless steel 1100 watt microwave starts beeping out of the blue and the display panel shuts off and when I open the door it resets itself and then starts to beep when I close the door again.

Try removing the power cord for about a minute, push all the touch pad 'buttons' and then plug it back in. If this doesn't work it sounds like you may have a bad door interlock switch or a bad PCM .. Good luck !

Sharp R408LS keeps sparking after minimal use. This is our 3rd one. This is mounted on an inside cabintet.

The magnetron is arcing in the interior and will eventually burn out. Check the inside for bare metal or food particals, if okay! the magnetron is breaking down and will eventually go.

Microwave turns on but doesnt heat

The microwaves are produced by a MAGNETRON. Everything else can work, but if that does not, then there is no heat added to the food. Unfortunately it is the most expensive part of the microwave and has nothing you can really work on.

Hope this helps.

No power to unit. Internal fuse ok. Power ok to plug

It sounds like you have a short in the keypad controller system, there is a microprocessor board mounted behind the the keypad that control vital areas of the microwave's operation. I suggest appliance technician to check out the systems hardware and the rest of the oven.
