The part said it was for a GE, but it worked fine on our Kenmore Elite Speedcook. Open the microwave door. Carefully insert a knife or thin screwdriver around the black casing on the door and slowly pop off the inside door cover - be careful not to go too fast as you will break the plastic pieces that hold the cover in place. Once the inside door cover is off, unscrew the old handle, there should be two screws - one on top and one on the bottom. You can use the old screws to put the new handle on unless you strip the screws trying to get them off the old handle. This happened to us. We simply found a similar screw to use in its place. Replace the inside plastic door cover by slowly popping it back in place. Make sure you go around the whole door to make sure all the little tabs snap back in.
