This morning, soon after my brother-in-law had finished microwaving some pizza, we were startled to find the microwave arcing quite a bit while it was *off*. We opened the door and the arcing stopped. It had caused the microwave to reset, asking us to hit "clock" to set the time again. I decided to unplug the unit instead.
I examined the interior of the unit, and it looks perfect -- no scorch or burn marks anywhere. But what baffles me is how could arcing of any kind occur if the magnetron was not energized? Could it have come from the capacitor?
I'd appreciate any feedback somebody could offer me. This microwave is less than six months old, so it is still within warranty, but it is important to me to know *how* something like this could happen. Thanks!

Unless the pizza was specifically packaged for microwave use, pizza cooking in a microwave is usually a bad idea. They don't turn out well. Although microwaves are referred to as "ovens", they really don't bake things, they boil them by heating the moisture in the product. Thus, pizza crust will not rise and get crispy unless the pizza was pre-made to be microwave reheated. Those pizzas will give instructions on how to microwave them.
I would check the cooking instructions on the side of the pizzas packaging. If microwave cooking is not listed I would not recommend cooking it in a microwave as this could make the food unsafe to eat.
