I believe that there is an electrical short in a component or the wiring harness. Anytime you have this type of issue we recommend calling a service technician to come out & diagnose the problem.

Hello Linda73,
You can look in your owner's manual, if don't obtain one you can go to Manage My Life and click on the manuals. Another suggestion I have for you is to contact your gas company to make sure it's not a gas leak. I attached the link below for Manage My Life. Hope this helps!!

You've done some excellent trouble shooting but I don't believe it's a venting issue. I would take this situation more seriously. I have provided two links below for you to review while you're waiting for your expert response. I hope this helps and you might try waiting for that response before using your unit again.

The cooking rack gives you extra space when cooking in more that one container at the same time. The rack should only be left inside the microwave when cooking food on both levels, otherwise it should not be left inside the microwave or this could possibly happen. Once the rack holder becomes burnt and carbonized it will continue to spark and burn. The rack holder will need to removed and replaced. Part number for the rack holders is 4393849.

I recommend calling a service technician to remove and replace the rack holders and to check over the microwave for any other possible damages.
