It was very simple...there were two screws on the inside of the door that held the handle. Removing the screws was easy and the new handle lined up perfectly. I replace the screws and the whole event took less than 15 minutes. The handle arrived from PartSelect the day after I ordered it and even though they had projected 3-5 days for delivery.

Removed the 2 screws at the inside of the microwave door-can't miss them, removed the handle. I think it took more time to clean the area around the handle on the front of the door than it did to replace it. Anyway, held the new handle in place and re-attached the 2 screws and it was done.

Turned the power to the unit off. Removed seven- (7) small screws from the base plate, not removing the rear screws. The plate dropped a few inches allowing me to get to the light socket.

I removed one- (1) screw that allowed the socket to be removed. I then detached the two- (2) electrical leads. I now installed the new socket, replacing the leads and the screw along with a new bulb. I pushed the bottom plate back into the up position and replaced the seven- (7) screws.

Turned the power back on and we were good to go.
