Microwaves are probably most dangerous home appliances to work with. Seems like the part you described is a magnetron - the part which actually creates microwaves. The part itself will cost you more than $80. If the microwave channel in the body of the microwave is damaged due to arcing - it's not repairable at all.

I would recommend just to replace the whole microwave. They are not expensive today.
