The part arrived very quickly - within three days of my order. It was a little challenging to get the broken handle off - you have to hold the plastic screw inserts with pliers or another screwdriver to prevent the screws from just spinning in place. Once secured from spinning, I was able to remove the two screws that attach the handle to the microwave door. The new part went on easily, but the fit of the new handle was snug and the screws a little difficult to drive. It helps if you push on the handle to keep it tight as you drive the screws. The entire repair was completed within five minutes and the microwave was "back in business". This repair can be easily completed by someone with little mechanical ability.
