Sorry to hear of your recent fridge problems Jill. I'm glad everything
worked out ok for you. I hear you on the handle. Our old microwave had
a door release button under the control panel but our new one opens by
just pulling the door. I don't how many times I've pushed under the
control panel then realized I don't need to do that any more. My new
range has the push then turn knobs so I have to get used to those as
well. Change is good if by choice but sometimes disorienting.
