French door latch broken
« on: April 12, 2011, 12:26:15 PM »


I have determined that this Kenmore was made by LG, but am at a loss as to how to replace the latch. I can buy it from Sears Parts Direct, but cannot figure out how to go about replacing it if/once I order it.  I am pretty handy (fixed my last fridge, washing machine, and hot water heater), but don't like to go down the repair path without a diagram or instructions.  

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you,
