First I opened the door of the microwave oven and unscrewed the top screw holding the handle to the door. Then I removed the dor gasket which obscured the bottom screw. Then I unscrewed the bottom screw and removed the broken handle. Unfortuantely, this is the second time I have had to replace a broken handle. The handle is quite simply not strong enough to endure normal usage over time. If you pull the handle in a hurry and in an awkward way it will break. Shame on you, GE. Anyway, installation of the new handle was the reverse of the removal of the broken one. Very simple. I saved myself an expensive service call and the delay in getting it replaced, PartSelect got the part I ordered to me in 24 hours! Thank you very much!
