Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now. Please give me time to respond as typing, researching and adding links takes me time to do so please be patient and often I will ask you questions to narrow down the issue so do not rate me until we are done thanks. So let’s get started!

Do you have the outer shroud off the unit?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No I have the vent hood off and the control panel undone
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

OK you should be able to do it from there, do you have the new part? Or are you having an issue getting it in?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Do you have any additional instructions? The video did not help
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

Can you tell me which part you are having difficulty with or upload some pics of what you are seeing so I can try and guide you through this

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
New part-2nd pic. Broken part
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

Ok your second image was really blurry, but that should just snap in place with the two pegs. Are the two holes that it would go into part of the metal frame?

Do you not have a solution for me? It has been almost an hour.

You did not even complete the conversation. How do I get a refund?

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! There is a metal tab that is bent to prevent the lever from sliding out of the holding holes. Bend that tab up and slide the old lever out and install the new lever and bend the tab back in place to keep the new latch from sliding out.
