The cover is the waveguide cover and must be replaced to keep the magnetron free from steam and food particles. Your local microwave repair shop can do it quite easily or you may be able to buy a mica cover online.

There is a piece of cardboard inside covering a metal panel, do I need to remove it?


Interior of microwave ovens are metal, never cardboard. Must be something used for shipping purposes, pitch it.

Just purchased and installed. Waveguide cover is cardboard with a waxie coating. Manual says DO NOT REMOVE. Is this really the cover or is the real cover underneath the cardboard one?


That is the wave guide cover and is not cardboard but a special material. Do not remove it but try to keep it somewhat clean of food splashes.

My built-in microwave, 2001 build UMC5100ADW emits sparks from behind cardboard panel. Suspect magnatron, or maybe metal deposits in cardboard. Looking for a replacement to fit the frame...


That "Cardboard" item is a wave guide cover and is critical part of the machine.
It is made of mica and needs replacing. The magnetron is OK as long as it does not spark too much or get any foreign items in there.
Replace the wave guide cover.

That's the waveguide cover.

If your waveguide cover is burned or damaged, it will need to be replaced.

It provides critical protection for the magnetron.

You should be able to get Galaxy parts from the Sears site.

To find helpful exploded view diagrams and get part numbers, you can just enter your full model number at the Sears parts site.

A full Galaxy/Sears/Kenmore model number has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########

IS MY MICROWAVE NOW UNSAFE TO USE - CAN I DO OWN HOME REPAIR?


It sounds like what you are describing is called a "waveguide cover". You can purchase a replacement from a local parts supplier, or on-line at www.repairclinic.com. It is very easy to replace.

What is the cardboard cover inside my microwave for?


It may not be cardboard - it may be a material called mica which is located over where the magnetron is located in the unit. This is a protective cover and if it is what I think it is, do not remove under any circumstances, otherwise you may render the microwave unsafe to use.

My Sanyo 1000W microwave is shooting sparks!!!


you need to replace the cavity cover "the cardboard like",the antenna bearing set "the gun barrel like" and the gear motor.If the "gun barrel like" is stuck up because the gear motor is not rotating excessive heat will occur inside the microwave thus burning the cavity cover.

No, that is the "waveguide cover".

It provides very important protection for the magnetron.


And always keep it clean according to your manual's instructions.
