This was the second replacement glass I've bought, but I'm unsure if the first one was from PartsSelect or GE directly. It was a couple years ago when I purchased the first one. The first one popped in rather easily. I scraped out the rust and debris that had built up within the lower metal track and then inserted the glass. By pulling upwards on the door handle I had just enough room to pop it into the upper plastic tabs. The second door I bought was harder. I truly feel the second was larger. I tried the original procedure, but there was significantly more glass at the top, and I couldn't push up on the handle to even clear the handle itself. I removed the glass to re-cleaned the lower track, but it was clear of debris, so that wasn't the problem. I had to completely dismantle the outside plastic frame, insert the window and put it back together. It did fit after that, but now the door scrapes at the top ever so slightly when you shut it. Overall I'm very satisfied, since the oven is older now, but looks great again.
