This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
We had to buy star shaped screw driver bits to get the screws out. After that it was easy, unscrewed 2 screws, removed the old end pieces, and replaced with new end pieces and new screws. We used the original spacers and nuts. Repair was quick and easy. We found these same parts on the Sears website for $33 each. Here they were only $14 each.

I dis asymbled the door to access the broken end cap screw holders(plastic) Take great caution with the door glass. It is held in place by thin stamped steel slots and when taking the door face apart, the glass is free to fall out. I placed four strips of adhesive tape on the glass to hold it in place while I replaced the handle end caps. Use an electric screwdriver to place the retainer screws. It speeds up the work, and allows your other hand to stabilize the door. Caution to not over torque the steel screws. They screw into plastic and can strip easy. Another point: These replacement End Caps did not come with any supporting hardware - screws. I was lucky in that I retained the original screws and they were in good condition and could be recycled. Very impressed with the service, would recommend to all. Frighteningly fast delivery. I was shocked to see the box on my porch in just a few days.R/CSB
I did not know what kind of tool was needed to remove the screws so I asked at the hardware store. When i said the screw was star shaped, he sold me torque wrench with multiple heads. First I removed the screw holding the broken handle in place. I cleaned surfaces. Next I attempted to put the handle in place on the horizontal bar and then put the screw into the opening. That did not work. I jiggled the handle for a while but could not get the pegs into the holes. Finally, I just held the handle in place and began to turn the screw and the handle slid into place as the screw got tighter.
Bought a used stove for my sister at an auction that had a damaged face/control panel (trim bracket assy)and oven door handle was damaged. I ordered replacement parts that arrived quicker than I expected..took my time taking the stove apart so as not lose or damage any other parts and made the repair. The stove looks and works like new.
Remove the front panel, at which time the spring loaded door slammed closed while the paned and handle were in my hand. Fortunately I had a star bit to fit the screw holding the door and panel together.The parts should come with 2 screws since the part has holes for 2. note: the factory installed handle only had 1 screw in each side.
