Open the door and removed the 2 screws that hold the front
glass and stainless steel panel (Hold on to the door handle
or the face and glass will come crashing to the floor; learned this after the first time a couple of years ago $$$). Set the stainless steel panel in a safe area until ready for reassembly.
Next, you must remove the black plastic cover which is still
remaining on the door in order to get to the springs. There are 2 screws that hold the plastic cover which are difficult
to access without removing the side and bottom trim of the
microwave opening. The spring was easy to replace at this point and didn't require any tools; just observe when taking
the broken one off, plus you can use the other spring as a
go by. Replace the black plastic cover, the bottom trim, the
side trims and the stainless door panel and it's complete!
