A common theme you'll see thoughout the repair stories;

1. many broken handles at the hinge
2. TURN THE POWER OFF.

This assembly comes with the microswitches (which is not a bad idea to replace since they are electromechanical and will eventually fail). My only recommendation is to buy a couple of these handle assemblies because they WILL fail. I'm on my 3rd!
