Replaced the sockets, lens and bulbs. The first time the new bulb was touching the lens and the heat broke the lens and burnt out the bulb. The second time I adjusted the socket so that the bulb does not touch the lens.

Impressed by how quickly the parts arrived after the order was submitted. Two days.

Thank you.

The handle had been glued on previously, and broke off when I grabbed it. The glue had traveled into the holes where the plastic extends into the door for the screws to grab, so getting the screws and broken phalanges out was not easy. Using needle nosed pliers and an awl to scrape out the old glue worked, but it took some time.
Once I was able to get the screws loose and pop out the broken bits, the new part fit perfectly and is working like new.

I just undid the 2 screws with Philips screwdriver and replaced handle and reinstalled same screws.

I had to use a pair of needle nose pliers to hold the threaded plastic remnants of the original handle steady, while I used a phillips head screw driver to back each screw out. This process required careful use of the pliers as they would slip, a LOT... But once the orignal pieces were out, the new handle went in perfectly. And just in time to start cooking Thanksgiving dinner!
