I found the instructions from the other users very helpful. MAKE SURE POWER IS OFF. The wire connectors were extremely hard to separate. Patience is the key. But I found the suggestion of wiggling the connections horizontally then vertically, all the while pulling like crazy with pliers, to be what worked best. I had a concern that once apart I might get the polarity of the new plugs wrong so I used a permanent marker to mark which insert went in which hole on the connector. If you get frustrated, walk away and come back later. Great service. The new handle arrived the second day after ordering.
