1) Remove three screws on back of microwave, so you can slide the top cover back and remove it. 2) Remove the nut at the top of the control panel with a nut driver or wrench. Pull the control panel out enough to get to the door switch. You don't need to take the panel all the way off or unhook any of the attaching wires to the control panel. 3) Remove the old door switch. It just sits in some guide grooves. There are no fasteners to remove. 4) Put the new switch into the same position as the old one. 5) Verify the door opens when the switch is pressed. 6) Replace front control panel and top cover. 7) Microwave one cup of water and fix yourself a nice cup of tea.
