I don't think you're really qualified to be investigating any sort of
"radiation". If you intend to use an electronic device (no matter how
simple) to detect something, you need to have a fundamental
understanding of both your detector and whatever you are trying to
detect. You don't seem to understand either. As others have already
mentioned, having the microwave turned off is irrelevant -- it still has
an energized transformer, and it will still produce an indictive spike
when unplugged. If you don't believe us, then perhaps you could provide
a cogent and accurate description of exactly what *is* happening. Nope?
Didn't think so. Now throw it away.
