This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
Open the microwave door and remove the plastic frame around the glass. Easy to crack and fragile. Use a small flathead and gently pry the frame it will pop out. Unscrew the handle screws on the inside of the frame you just removed. Handle will easily come off. Use the same screw driver and remove the front outside frame again plastic and will break, but since your replacing it...who cares if it cracks. Again, pops off from the holding brackets. IMPORTANT......REMOVE THE TOP FIRST. THE GLASS WILL SLIDE OUT AND DROP. NOTHING IS HOLDING THE GLASS IN EXCEPT THIS PLASTIC FRAME. Piece of cake from here int...

I removed the inner flexible plastic door frame (light grey) which allowed me to get to the screws that held the handle. I then carefully pryed the broken outer door frame off by pulling each side down and out. Next I removed the glass door front from the broken outer frame and smapped it into the new outer frame. I attaced the new handle with one screw to the top and one to the bottwm on the new outer frame. Finally I snapped the entire outer frame back on the microwave and added another screw to the top and bottom of the handle. Hint: These plastic parts are extremely fragile so use great care when snapping the parts back onto the microwave.
Removing the inner plastic was fairly easy but take care that you don't crack the edge by being too aggressive. After removing the frame I realized that the handle had not only broken where the screws attach to the handle but also pulled through the frame. I needed to add a couple of small washers and a little epoxy to hold it firm. Works great now.
Easy application but had to further secure with wall anchors to support the old hole attachment
