Most of the effort is simply getting the oven out of the built in enclosure and the sheet metal off. This take about 15 minutes then you have to remove the two screws (not handy location) that hold the door latch/switch assembly so you can remove the switch. I did this BEFORE ordering so I could test the switch (it was charred) and verify the part needed. WATCH OUT - some ovens use a normally open an some a normally closed version of this switch - you have to get the right one. I checked several suppliers that were showing the WRONG switch for my model. PartSelect had it right. Once I received the switch I had it on and the oven installed and running in less than 30 miutes. Working fine since then...

I went on the PartSelect page and found the model # for my microwave and ordered the handle. I thought I was going to have to wait for several weeks but it arrived in three days. The only glitch was that the plastic end of the broken handle was still attached to the screw and I couldn't get a grip on it in order to remove the screw...so I tried several different things... ultimately using a corkscrew to pierce the old piece of plastic handle thus allowing me to remove the screw and in two minutes I was able to replace the handle.
I can't believe it was that easy. Thank you.

Handed the part to my son. He unscrewed 5 screws in the base of the microwave, it dropped down. The light mechanism was clearly in view. With the exception of some corrosion on the old piece, it was simple to remove and replace, put back together, screw back up and all worked fine.

Opened microwave door,removed top and bottom screws (phillips), discarded old handle, put new handle in place, installed top and bottom screws in new handle, closed microwave door. Hard part was discarding the old handle because it required pulling out the trash can drawer(ha-ha).

I purchased the fuse and 3 door switches from PartSelect. Replaced the fuse first but that did not solve the problem. Then I replaced the 3 door switches and problem solved!! So fuse only cost $5.00 so glad I have a new fuse in there as well. To see how to replace door switches see videos on utube!!

I went to use our microwave the Thursday before Christmas and the handle broke right off in my hand. I had to get to work and i did not tell my wife. By ten o'clock she called me and said the handle broke off when she used the microwave. I said I would try to find one and I did at PartSelect.The shipping I chose said 3 to 5 days.I placed the order about 2:30 that afternoon.The next day my wife called and said the handle had arrived and she put it on herself. Thanks for your prompt service, Allan Carignan

The switches are not the problem! The problem is in the tolerences of the latch housing. I have ordered two new housings (Upper & Lower) and will see if the tolerences are closer. If not I will try epoxying a shim to the plate that operates the microswitches. The other option is to file the mounting slots of the housing to allow adjustment, which would be iffy,keeping them from moving with use. The exploded drawings really need to be clarified. The scale is way too small. It was extremely difficult to pick out the individual parts of the mechanisiam.
