The first thing I did was checked to make sure that it was receiving power. Once that was verified, I started a little troubleshooting for the problem I was having, and discovered the problem was more than likely the switch on the door. I followed the excellent instructions on the website -- which I really needed. I removed the 8-10 screws on the door, removed the old parts and replaced with the new ones in less than 30 min total. I am certain that I saved myself well over $100 with this quick, easy, do-it-yourself approach.
