That is most likely caused by a failing wave guide cover. It is situated in the cavity and protects the magnetron.
Most dealers keep or can easily get them.
Hope that helps.

How do you repair the surface light on microwave


You know how when you turn on a regular light bulb and it burns out with a bright flash? What happens is that when the filament burns out, it breaks and bounces back and hits the other electrical post and basically shorts out causing that bright flash. Sometimes, when the light bulb in the microwave burned out, it shorted out, and caused the circuit-board trace to burn up. (This is not just conjecture; I've seen it.) If that's the case, then you would have to replace the main control circuit board. Unfortunately, a rather expensive repair for no lights. (Although the circuit board trace can usually be repaired by direct-soldering a wire to replace the burned trace. Sears repairmen won't do this, but an independent electronic technician could do it.

Microwave made loud popping noise


The magnetron is bad. Probably cost about $50 or $60 for the part. Not too easy to replace, but it can be done.
