After trying to bend parts that do not bend I realized you need to remove the plastic gasket around perimeter of microwave door but leave it loosely hanging on (pry off with screwdriver) With the gasket removed you can fit the door on and the snap the gasket back in place before closing and testing. The door was a perfect fit, it works great. The door will not go on until you remove or bend back that gasket. It's not obvious how or where to remove but just put a screwdriver in there and you'll feel it pop out and it snaps right back in after assembly..
