This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
1st I opened the oven door and removed the 2 screws that hold the outside and inside of the door together. With the door separated I removed the 2 screws that hold the end caps in place, then removed the old end caps. I put the new end caps on the oven door handle, aligned the holes for the end cap screws and reinstalled the screws,then reinstalled the oven door screws,closed the oven door and started cooking.

So easy, first I turned off the main switch to the electric. Unscrewed old bake element and screwed in the new one. Worked like a charm. We also bought from Part Select new burners and drip pans. Can't believe how good it looks. I placed my order on a Sunday and received it on Tuesday!! 2 days. Awesome website...Have told everyone about it..THANK YOU PART SELECT..

First I unscrewed the end of the oven door and realized I could replaced the parts easily that hold the handle on the door. Then I held the sharp, broken plastic ends with a towel and used my drill with a thingy that fits on a small hex nut and unscrewed the broken handle parts and removed them. All I had to do after that is screw on the new handle holders with the handle bar fit snuggly between them, presto, new handle bar installed. Great service from partselect. com. Would use them again.!
Although the parts did fit, some modification was needed to remove the excess tabs as it appears these parts were for multiple applications. However the end result was a good fit and reapirs were successful.
Removed screws in door and pulled apart inside and outside, broken plastic pieces fell everywhere. Removed interior screws that held the end caps for the handle. Put the new end caps and handle together, placed on door and screwed in the interior screws to hold handle. Pushed inside and outside of door together and replaced screws. It appears that there were spaces on those screws that correctly placed the inside and outside which were broken to shreds. I could not find those on the the parts list so the door is not as good as it should be.
Removed oven door from oven. Removed the inner oven door portion from the outer part to gain access to inner screws attaching end caps to front of stove door. Removed those screws and the old end caps & broken off pieces. Pressed oven door handle bar into new end caps. Reattached oven door handle assembly to front of oven door. Reinstalled inner oven door which included long screws that also went into the new end caps. Reinstalled oven door on oven. Job was easy. Price was certainly right for the end caps at $10.01/each.
Prices on drip pans were so reasonable I easily replaced them . No screws involved here. For end cap, had to remove both screws that held porcelin inner door wall to get to one other screw that held broken handle on outside of door. Put same screw into new end cap. Closed inner porcelin liner. Those two longer screws go through both panels and screw into end cap (one for each end cap) There are two screws in each end cap. This saved me so much money and is the 2nd appliance I have fixed myself. 60 year old female. The other was my dishwasher. This site is a blessing.
I read the previous repair stories and figured it couldn't be that tough. Mine actually had a slight deviation and I'm sure based on model...To remove the oven door handle, I had to remove 3 screws (phillips) on the top of the hinged door. This allowed the face plate to easily pull away from the inside of the door. The existing handles were held in place by a single hex head screw each.Voila, in 2 minutes the entire handle was off.This is where things had a slight deviation.The door end caps I bought had 2 alignment prongs that extended beyond the actual surface. My door did not have holes for them to go into. No big deal, I took some wire snippers and clipped the little plastic prongs off so it was flush like my old ones. That took about 3 minutes because I had to go back into the garage to get the tool :-)My metal door handle bar did not want to go all the way in very easily into the end caps. I went back into the garage and got some WD40 and sprayed into all pieces and wiggled things back and forth for a few minutes, placing it against the oven a couple of times to ensure I had the bar was seated enough where the holes lined up with the oven.I would recommend putting the end caps on the bar PRIOR to attaching one side to the oven. I originally did not do this and when it was difficult to get the bar on, I had to take it off so I could perform the procedure I just mentioned.Honestly, the entire "job" took 10 minutes.
Had to take back off of the door to get to screw that held the broken piece of handle before installing the new part. Then had to put the back on the door and slip the door into place.
The handle on the door was the hardes part of the fix. Took 20 minutes,Pull the door up & off,remove 3 screws from the top & 3 from the bottom. take the back panel off & remove 2 nutdrive screws fom the handle & replace with new handle. SIMPLE. With door off & broiler door open unscrew hinge & reach in broiler right side and remove spring by lefting straigh up on spring. Very easy too do. Replace with new hinge 3 screws. Put spring back on & fill with hand for holes. There are 3 holes in spring plate. It'S easy,10 minutes & your done
just replace the end cap with a new one all that was involue was to screw the new one in took about ten minutes and job done better than buying a new stove when the stove is still just like new. thank you for your on line help.
Took off the inside ( this allowed me to clean the glass) panel. Removed the two end parts with a screw driver. Replace the parts and we were good to go.
I attached the end caps to my existing handle, but had to squeeze the parts together very hard to get them to mesh to the correct distance of the holes. I removed the screws holding outside frame of the oven door. I then opened the door fully, propping it up on my knee and removed the inside end cap screws. Placing the handle in position underneath the propped door, I attached the screws. Lastly I reassembled the door.
Open door lift door off hinges lay door face down on flat surface remove 6 phillip head screws 3 on each side lift housing out of door case remove end knob phillip head screws installed one knob insert bar attch second knob and tighten screws lay housing back into casing attach screws doing one at a time on each side slide door back on to hinges and test operate, you are done!
