Sparks when cooking


Make sure no metal item (forks-spoons or oven rack) is touching the outer wall of the microwave. That will cause sparks. If all that is OK then there is usually a metal fan type blade in the microwave top called a stirrer blade that may be out of place and rubbing the cavity causing sparks. Try to pin point the spark area so you know where to look for the problem. Sparks usually mean metal is touching metal somewhere.

Sanyo em-c 1800 sparking inside at top


That's not good at all....

check to make sure there isn't any food at the top of the microwave, also, if your microwave allows maybe try turning down the wattage when you cook such as cook on medium or Low wattage.

Also, you may need to just get a new microwave.

My Goldstar MV-1310W microwave has sparks flying from the metal plate that's inside on the top.


Microwave ovens do not work well with exposed metal. IF you place uncoated metal in the oven, sparks will occur.
IF the interior of the oven has the metal exposed, it will cause sparking to occur.

There must be NO exposed metal inside a Microwave oven!

Everytime i turn it on sparks fly


If they is any exposed metal in the cooking bay of the oven or grease it will cause it to spark and catch fire. If it is please clean the oven throughly. If it is sparking from the back the magnetron is bad and need to be replaced.

The top plate inside the microwave sparks while cooking. We checked the dish we were cooking with, the papertowel that covered the dish. What could be causing this?


The wave guide could be dirty or damaged. Dirty oven interior can also cause sparking. The wave guide is probably not dirty if it's not on the interior of the oven . Some are behind the interior wall .

Microwave sparks on the inside


It sounds like it needs professional servicing. There may be an issue with excessive radiation escaping from the oven -- this could be dangerous. Can't say for sure, but were it my oven, I would take it to a shop with the equipment to test for this condition.

Paint off inside top of microwave exposing metal. Safe to use?


It would be dangerous to do so. Any exposed metal inside a microwave is source for sparks and is extremely hazardous. I would recommend getting the paint job done up, or even better, buy a newer model.
