I removed the door, by taking off the grill at the top. Then, take the puddy knife and screw driver and pry the facing off of the door. Please remember to be very careful because this is a sensitive piece. This is the most difficult part. It is a piece of cake after this. This should take about 15 minutes from beginning to end.

We opened the microwave door and essentially with a straight screwdriver worked to "pop" the plastic frame off of the door. We tried to be less aggressive in our efforts and this paid off since we didn't break anything! The area we needed to work on was now exposed to put the new latch in. It took 2 hands rather than 3 to get the new latch attached and then wah-lah, It was done! Microwave works perfectly now. Great alternative to buying a new microwave!

First I removed the vent on top. 2 screws had to be removed. Once plastic vent was removed I could lift door off. I then placed the door flat on counter top to get to backside of door. With 2 flat screwdrivers I pried apart the Door choke cover carefully as to not break the tabs. Its almost impossible not to break them. Thats why I ordered the replacement part. Good thing. I only broke 1. I could have reused it. However I chose to use the new one. Since handle in incorporated in the door, you have to take the door apart. I purchased the Door choke cover as well as a handle. After you remove the choke cover, remove the 6 or 7 small screws around the inner frame next. Now you can get to the door handle screws. Since the door handle broke off, you need to use needle nose pliers to hold the broken plastic on the outside of the door while unscrewing the inside screw that holds the handle. Once removed. replace the handle. Then carefully put it back the same way you took it apart. It took me about 15 to 20 minutes. Im a Female and thrilled I didn't have to call a repairman and get charged 200+

replaced broken handle

Look carefully at the blow up of the inner ring or you could break the tabs tryig to get it out. I missed seeing the tabs on that blow up and I broke many of the tabs on the inner ring. I assumed they were on the outer rim of that ring when in fact they were on the inner edge.

Fortunately there were enough locking tabls left to reuse that part.

I hope the new design of your door handles strengthens the bottom attachment as it is the weaker of the two attachment points and yet it gets the most force as most people will pull down on the over head handle rather than straight out.

Parts select made the ordering very easy and the exact part arrived shortly after ordering. I would suggest following ALL the suggestions to a tee that others have written in. Removing the entire door (a suggestion) was definitely a good idea. I had to do some 'extra' rigging because one of the plastic screws was also broken and that is actually part of the door..........and I would have to replace the entire door ($$$).......didn't want to do that. "DO" be careful when removing the little clips....that is a little tricky but do-able......IF you take your time. THANKS for all the other people before me that wrote in their hints...I did listen to my wife and read them all before I started. Good luck.

Remove upper vent (2 screws) lift up on door after opening. Door will come off pretty easily. Slide putty knife between parts and remove. Take out screws and replace handle with the original screws. Reverse procedure rehang door and become a hero to the bride. Don't worry about the snapped off tabs. There will be enough of them left to hold everything together.

Disassembled the front cover, found slow blow fuses, then replaced with microwave fuses 250V-20Amp. Utilized a few fuses to pin point the problem, Microwave functions all worked except the express feature, made an assumption after using a tester that it was the high voltage capacitor and the diode that attaches. Replaced both, plugged in and tested. Worked! reinstalled the unit. Sucessfull for the past month.
