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.

Right hand surface lamp burned out. It apparently fald up and broke the glass cover. I wne on line when I found out the only local deaaler was some miles away and more expensive.

Simple. The parts came instantly. The glass was too big so I had it cut to size. I unscrewed the fixture with a screw driver replaced the bulb and slipped the glass cover into the frame and screwed the whole assembly in.

First I removed the two screws that held the handle on. Then I laid the handle down in the way it was on the microwave to be sure I didn't put the new handle on up side down. It appeared only one way to put the handle on. The screws were a little difficult to screw in all the way. First time doing something like this and I was afraid I'd break the new handle. So I had my son to help. No problem once the handle was attached properly. Thank you so much for the quick delivery. The handle works perfectly now.

Had to use a hammer and small screwdriver to remove some of the old plastic. If I had a small drill that would have worked better. Once I got that off is was easy to unscrew the old screws and replace the handle. It fit perfectly.

It was very easy to repair. Removed the old broken pieces and screwed in the existing hardware into the new handle that fit perfectly. The only problem is that the door handle is brand new and bright white and the appliance has faded. What are you gonna do!
