Cracked outer door frame

1. Remove the two screws at the bottom of the door.
2. Remove the three screws at the side of the door.
3. If you look at the replacement door frame, you'll see the built in clips that snap in place to hold the frame in place.
4. Using the putty knife, gently pry the top of the old frame up, undoing one clip at the time.
5. In my case, the glass had fallen out of its frame. I had to make sure that the glass didn't fall down in the process of removing the door frame.
6. The door frame assembly should be off the door now. Lay on a flat surface facing down.
7. Remove the inside plastic frame.
8. Remove the glass.
9. Remove the door handle by removing the two screws holding the door handle to the frame.
10. Replace the glass on the new door frame by carefully snapping in place using the clips on the door frame.
11. Replace the inside plastic frame by carefully snapping in place using the clips on the door frame.
12. I used a hot glue gun to glue the glass and the inside plastic frame to the door frame in a few places. I noticed this was done at the factory when originally assembled.
13. Replace the door handle by screwing the two screws holding the door handle back on to the frame.
14. Snap the completed door frame assembly back on to the door.
15. Replace the two screws at the bottom of the door and the three screws at the side of the door.
**** Note that I did not have to remove the door from the microwave to replace the frame.

CustomerJerry from Stevens Point WI

Cracked outer door frame

Overall a very easy fit, the key for me was being gentle with the glass if your door has an extreme crack (as mine did). If it does, the glass can easily fall out of the frame. The plastic clips that hold the glass to the frame are also quite fragile, so just gently work the glass into the clips without forcing it.

Took me about 20 minutes.

1) Remove 3 screws from side of door
2) Remove 2 screws from bottom of door
3) Carefully slide outer frame of of door.

If crack is extreme (as mine was), be careful that the glass does not completely fall out when removing frame

4) I used a putty knife to carefully pry up the top part of the frame as it has clips that fit into slots on the door.
4)Once frame is removed use screwdriver to remove door handle
5) Remove glass from frame and replace with new one. Use the putty knife to gently push the clips onto to it as the plastic clips that hold the glass look easily breakable
6) Re-attach door handle
7) Slide new frame back onto door, push top clips down into door top and replace all screws

Broken bottom of door frame

Remove 6 screws, remove glass and black molding. Then I placed those items in the new frame. Placed the frame on the Hinges and replaced the screws. It was that easy.
