Turn off the power. Remove all the screws from the inside panel of the door. (Actually, I left the two bottom ones - near the hinge - in to hold it in place.) The two screws at the top also hold the latch assembly so when I separated the panel from the door, it was almost fell out. I removed & replaced the assembly, using insulated pliars to do the electrical connections. The new one snaps right in where the old one came out. Lined it all back up, replaced the screws, and all was good as new. One note, if your door is dirty around the edge where it seals, it's easy to clean it while the screws are out.
