A contaminated wave guide cover will crackle and spark.
They should be periodically checked, cleaned or replaced.
Contact Maytag for replacement parts.
Hope this fixes your noise.

The crackling (which sounded a little like a geiger counter) which I could hear when the oven was NOT running was coming from the speaker (where the beeps come from). I unplugged the oven, found the little speaker on the circuit board, yanked one of the wires off of it, and the crackling was be gone.

Microwave door handle broken

That's correct the door has to come apart. Just be careful that screen is actually a choke to keep in any microwave radiation. Put everything back exactly as you took it apart.

Good luck

Cracking sound and smoke came out of vent

You probably tried to operate the oven with metal inside or with no water or meat inside to heat. You might have to replace your magnetron.

I have this exact model with the same issue. I am a technician by trade on office equipment. I took the cover off where the door latches go in and there are 3 relay switches behind there. I adjusted the switches so the door latch would make better contact with them.

Microwave about 3 years old. Started making a bag of popcorn and after about 1 min. the unit started making a sizzling and grinding sound and a puff of smoke was noticed at the inside right panel opening....

Quite often this is due to grease or food particles stuck somewhere in the cavity of the oven or stuck on or behind the waveguide cover.

The waveguide cover (also called a spatter shield) is usually about the size of a playing card and often held in place by a plastic rivet.

It can be fragile, and the metal edges of the oven 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 metal of the oven wall is burned or chipped, the area will first have to be sanded smooth and cleaned and dried thoroughly.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

If the cavity metal of the oven is cracked or split, you can use a small amount of steel-based epoxy such as JB-WELD to patch the crack or hole.

Once that dries thoroughly, you can sand it very smooth, then apply paint.

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

It provides critical protection for the magnetron.

It sounds like the main transformer has failed. It would be cheaper to replace the whole microwave than repair this one. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Hope this helps. Good luck.

GE xl1800 spacesaver microwave

It sounds like you could have one or two problems. Using the oven with metal in it could cause the magnatron to go bad at its tip causing it to arc and making a popping sound. It could be that there is bare metal exposed somewhere causing the popping sound. Take it in for service!!
