What causes the stirrer fan to arc

crwdns2893800:0crwdne2893800:0:

When the microwave is started there are sparks in the top. So took out the stirrer fan and found some carbon on the fan blade and small area on the plastic shroud that had over heated.

Appears that the fan is not turning as the motor shaft can not be turned by hand.

If the fan is not turning is that the reason for the arcing?
