Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

That silver card board is called a wave guide. Without that part in place, microwaves can go back into the magnetron cavity and arc if too many build up. You will want to replace that part to fix the issue. You can order sheets of this stuff and cut them to size if you trace around the old cover. Below is where you can order it form Walmart for less than $10.
