Why Is My Microwave Sparking?

Answer

A sparking microwave can be very dangerous, but isn't always a sign that it is time to throw it out. The most common cause of a sparking microwave is a piece of metal which has been left behind inside the cooking area. People who clean the inside of their microwaves with steel wool should wipe down the inside after they're done with a damp cloth to remove any traces of metal left inside. Another possible reason is the turn table lug which turns the plate inside may need repair.
