Microwave makes loud electric sound when I turn it on, still works

When I started cooking with my microwave (Whirlpool model), I heard a loud electric popping sound but it continued to run and cooked my food just fine. I thought it might be a one-off occurrence, but it happened again later. I suspect it has something to do with the capacitor discharging itself when the microwave turns on, but when I opened it up I didn’t see any burn marks or other indications of what might be causing it. Any ideas?

Same problem with mine, the pop sound so scares me that whenever I start it I close my ears and start with the elbow coz the sound shocks me & makes my heart run so fast.

I believe it's cockroaches I don't think it is a coincidence that all three of my microwaves or sound like they're shooting at me. the last one I haven't even had a month. I also see a blue Flash come from the back of it when you hear the loud pop.
