It sounds as though it may be the microwave causing the problem. Have you tried plugging in anything else besides the microwave? If so what were the results?
Hope this helps you out. If you should need anything further please don't hesitate to ask. Good Luck!!

That to me sounds like at first the microwave burned up the outlet, but now – it sounds like you may have some wiring in the outlet box that was affected as well which is what is currently causing your problems.
What you need to do is open up that outlet box and inspect the wiring for any damage, either missing or melted insulation – burnt marks from a dead short etc. When you find this, you will need to remove the damaged wire and replace it with new wire. This just means cutting back the wire burnt and wire nutting new pieces of wire onto it in the box.
