Using a Microwave with Burn Holes In Wall

Category Microwave

I accidentally left a stainless teaspoon in a bowl of soup I was warming in the microwave. Sparks burned 6 pinholes onto the back wall. The micro continues to heat food, but could it be releasing radiation?

The amplitude of a microwave is "about the width of a pencil" my physics teacher told me. So a "pinhole" should be safe. However, the wall is there for a reason. It would be best to replace it sooner than later.
