This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
the door lifts off two pins after you remove the top piece. I broke the choke cover prying it off. It has little plastic things that hold the cover on. I popped it off from the outside. I think you may not break the clips if you go from the inside on the top an bottom. There are 3 on the top and 3 on the bottom about 4 inches in and in the center. The sides come off real easy. Even breaking the choke cover it was still almost $200 cheaper than the repair man.

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+
