Re: Need to change the light bulbs
The light shield has two tabs, one on each side. They may be on the front or back of the shield, It fits either way. Pull the tabs down and slide the shield back and forth a couple of time and it should drop from the four pegs that hold it in place. You will have access to the bulbs. You can go to http://www.subzero.com/locator/locator.aspx?type=0&zip=02030 and find a parts distributor near you or take a bulb to the store and match it. Make sure you get the same wattage rating.

you will have to remove the light shield, remove the plastic trim that says the model number in front of the light shield, then the 2 screws holding the side cover on the left side of the fridge section. Then the cover will need to be pushed towards the rear of the fridge then tipped out at the front. It has springs holding it in the back.That should access the bulb you need to change
The bulb is located behind the panel under the light cover and this unit takes four bulbs to light up the refer section. The bulb you seek is directly behind the display and computer unit mounted to the celling of the refer section.
Well the most likely cause is 2 bad door switches, though I rarely see the door switch go bad in the freezer. At the top of the door openings you will see 2 switches in the freezer and the fridge. If you pull down the grille and remove the cover over those switches, the light switch will be the one with the white back, and the fan switch will be the one with the black back. I would try changing the switch in the fridge, and maybe start in the freezer by changing at least 1 bulb before blaming the switch. If that 1 new bulb doesn't light, change that switch too.
Your Sub-Zero unit contains standard 40 watt appliance bulbs in all compartments.
You'll need to remove the light shield in the top of the refrigerator or freezer to replace the bulbs. Place your hands under the light shield and release the two clips on the back of the light shield, then lift up and slide back slowly until the key slots on the side of the light shield drop past the mounting studs in the side walls. Then remove the shield.
The bulbs are now accessible.
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.
The light switch at the top of the door frame is bad. it controls all the lighting including the display for the board. you will have to remove the grille up top, remove the cover over the 2 switches, and replace the switch that is all white. the one with a black back is for the fan and rarely goes bad. Just unplug the unit or at least turn it off before changing this switch, as it is live any time the unit is turned on.
