Question about Emerson MW8108P Microwave Oven
The Side metal plate is making popping noises and flashing white. I keep expecting Carrie Ann to come flying out of the microwave. Is there something i should do or should I keep it running until her arrival?
Do not use the oven! It sounds like the wave guide cover is burned and this poses a fire hazard should you continue to use it. Have a technician look at it and if this is the problem, it is usually a cheap fix.

Quite often this is due to grease or food particles stuck to the inside of the oven or stuck on or behind the waveguide cover.
The waveguide cover is usually about the size of a playing card and held in place by a plastic rivet.
It can be fragile, and the metal edges behind it can be sharp, so be careful!
The cover and the metal behind it should be cleaned with a mild, non-ammonia cleaner.
If the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean.
Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places liek Wal-Mart or Lowe's.
If your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced.
