    this is not what i need 
    i need to know how to take apart the panel the holds the switch so i can replace it

    I have the same problem, and jiggling the left switch (the lightswitch) will usually bet the light to come on. I'd like to replace itbut don't know how to remove it. Does it just pry out? I don't see anyway to get to it from above for the side. My SZ was manufactured in1988 and is still going strong, except for this problem.

    Thanks.

1. Check to see if the bulb has blown.

2. Check the plunger switch is making contact. ( the light must be on when the
door is open meaning that the plunger is sticking outward. the light should go
off when you press the plunger in)

Side by side Sub Zero light switch works intermittently.


I had the same problem with my sub-zero and finally resolved it (much to my wife's delight) by just replacing it. R&R was a lot simpler than having to work on it every time my wife had a problem.

I have a sub-zero model 532 where the fridge lights will not come on. I replaced the bulbs alll 4 are new. The freezer lghts still work.


The ref. door switch may be at fault.
Flip the switch several times and see if the lights come on.
If so replace the switch.

Also if the grille on top is removeable check and see if the wires to the door switch are disconnected.

Removing Door Panels on Sub Zero 532


Hi, there is a metal strip that runs down the middle of each door the entire lenth. It is held on with two magnets. Once you pull that strip of metal off, you will see five screws that hold the door handle on. Remove thos five screws and the entire handle comes free. Slide out the panel and replace the handle, screws and metal strip ion reverse order. Take your time removing the magnetic metal strip as it is a very soft metal and could possibly bend or kink up on you.

Hope this helps. I'm having some trouble locating any company that makes stainless stell to match the appliances. All of the metal companies say the appliance manufaturers have a propriety type of lock on the appliance metal finishes. I also have the 532 model.

Good Luck

SubZero 532 frig lights out


There are two door switches one for fan and the other for the lights. With the compressor running, there are two so yu need to make sure it is the refrigerator and not the freezer, open the door and press the right switch and listen for a fan. The left should be your light switch and the problem is generally in the switch, on rare occasions there is a failure of bi-metal safety switch part number 4200850. One very rare occasions you may have a wiring proble.If you go to www.subzero.com there is a showroom locator tab on the top right corner, click it and you will go to a locator page which will get you to your local parts didtributor.

Sub zero 532: noise increasing.


We have the same SubZero unit and the water leak is the ice maker line or the pan that catches condensation. If you unscrew the panel at the bottom, you will be able to take the pan out and see if the water is from there. If it is from the ice maker line (which was plastic on ours), you should fix this right away as we didn't and we ended up having a $10,000 flood that ruined our hardwood floors. Also, the increased motor noise happened to us as well, but when we had the motor replaced, it is not much quieter.

Sub-Zero 532 (About 18 years old)





First do the simple things like cleaning the condensor coils and turning the defrost timer a few times, also check the evaporator motor or just listen to the fan by opening the freezer door. Also check the light switch, make sure it turns the light off every time you close the door.
