this means that your magnetron is arching out and will be quite an extensive repair and cost quite a bit to correct unfortunately. Here is a link to the magnetron you will need to replace, but in addition to that you will need to sand down the wave guide and repaint it so that it doesn't arch out in the future. The wave guide is the box that the antenna of the magnetron enters.
