First removed the upper grill, second lifted the door off of the hinge pins; layed the door inside up on a towel and with the putty knife I released the tabs holding the inner frame to the door assembly. Now I removed the two screws that hold the handle to the inner frame than using the putty knife went around the and released the tabs holdind the front frame to the center glass assembly. Once the front frame was removed two more screws can be removed to completely remove the handle fron the front frame. I now assembled the new handle to the new front frame and reversed the above process by snapping the Glass assembly very carefully into the front frame sssembly. I than put the two screws back in that secure the handle and snapped the iner frame back in. I now rehung the door and reinstalled the upper grill. Note removal and assembly of the front frame to the inner glass assembly is a little tricky so take not of all of the tabs and also how the glass is caught top and bottom to the front frame.
