Open the door and start at the outside perrimeter of the plastic moulding by inserting the putty knife and gently prying up.I started at the 2 latches that secure the door when it closes.Work your way around to the top and bottom. I was able to leave the portion of the plastic moulding by the door hinges still intact while removing the screws for the handle and replacing with the new one.After handle is on gently snap moulding back in place.Remember start at the inside of the door in the small opening at the outter edge of the door.
It was really simple. I used the putty knife the seperate the plastic trim, paying particular to start near the latches as someone else posted. Once the trim was pulled back Wow the screws were right there. I unscrewed the broken handle and attached the new handle. It was really easy and my wife thinks I'm amazing thanks for the help.
Used putty knife to unsnap tabs to separate inner trim on top, bottom and handle sides (left the hinge side attached), removed upper and lower screws, replaced handle, reinserted screws (tight fit, big fingers, several dropped screws, one under the stove = 15+ minutes), re-snapped trim
Removed the inside door cover by taking a putty knife and inserting it by the door levers all around the door while pulling forward to seperate the cover so the screws that held the handle on could be reached. However, the part did not fit and had to be returned. Replaced cover by pinching it back in place.
Separated the two elements on the front door. Then inserted the new handle and reconnected the front door. It was an easy installation.
Used plastic putty knife to separate inside door plastic molding from metal door frame. Small section at a time starting from latch area. Worked the knife around door to separate plastic molding. Leave plastic intact near door hinges. Carefully separate out of the way the molding, and access Phillip screws with long screw driver. Replace handle and screw tight the screws. Push into place the plastic molding with your fingers until it clips back into place. The end.
Pried off the inner molding around the door to access screws. Attached new handle. reattached molding. Very easy
