Question about Sharp R-244 800 Watts Microwave Oven
That piece is called the waveguide cover. It's a mica sheet that goes over the hole in the side of the oven where the microwaves enter the cooking cavity. While the oven can work without it, you should replace it. It's meant to keep food particles and dirt from getting into the area of the microwave antenna, where it can possibly lead to damage.
I gather from researching the part that yours is a UK model oven. Here is a source for the replacement waveguide cover. If you're in some other part of the world, at least you'll know what you're looking for when you search for a more convenient source. You may be able to find a replacement locally, as the waveguide cover is a commonly-replaced item. Check with appliance parts houses or service shops in your area to see if one might be available.

To locate the inlet cover, look towards the interior side of the microwave next to the microwave display. The inlet is typically located near the back of the microwave, in the middle of the wall.
Unplug your microwave from the electrical outlet and remove any food or containers.
Wipe the inlet cover, typically located on the right side of the microwave in the middle of the wall, with a damp cloth. The cover must be kept clean or it will not protect the microwave.
Dry the inlet cover with a soft towel.
Leave the microwave door open for several hours to air out the inlet cover.
Examine the inlet cover for wear and tear. If the cover has too much damage in the form of scratches or holes, it may need replacement.
Remove the inlet cover, if desired. Insert a putty knife under the plastic nail that holds the inlet cover in place. Pry out the nails and set them aside. Pull out the micro plate in front of the inlet and set it aside. Remove the inlet plate.
Install a new inlet plate. Slide the new inlet cover into its place. Replace the nails back into the side of the microwave by aligning them with the holes of the side.
