Customer Question
I am replacing the...

I am replacing the door on my Kenmore microwave oven (model DU8500XT-3). I have removed the old door, replaced the handle on the new door and installed the glass in the door. I now have to snap the new door onto the frame. How do I do that without breaking the tabs that hold the door onto the frame?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Kenmore is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

It is about 15 years old. Model # is: DU8500XT-3.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes, I am doing it now.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

The door (it is actually just the plastic cover over the metal inner door) has tabs on the left side of the door (opposite the handle). Once the door is snapped into place, three screws on the right side hold the door in place.
