Question about Sub-Zero 690 Side by Side Refrigerator

2 Answers

The light on the refrigerator side of my Sub Zero does not work

The light on the refrigerator side of my Sub Zero 690 no longer turns on when the door is opened. The menu bar with the ice maker/temperature information does not light up either. Do you think it's a burnt out light bulb or possibly a wiring short?

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.

    the main board is easily replaced,you need a longer model number as i could not look up to see exactly where your board is located,but many are either inside a plastic panel on the back or inside the lower rear area on the unit,an appliance parts store can help you locate it with a full model number,then its just a matter of unplugging a harness or two and replacing this main board unit

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.

Light on refirgerator side doesn't come on unless I tap switch.


I had to take my switch apart and clean and lube it and it worked fine. Or just replace the switch. It may have gotten some sticky ketchup in it like mine did.

8 year old Sub-Zero model 690. Condensor coil leaking


When copper and aluminum are connected it cannot be welded, it has to be crimped. this is a problem that is not exclusive to sub zero, an all aluminum evaporator ( if it is in the refrigerator it's an evaporator) should resolve the problem nicely

Sub zero 690 the control lpanal light does not come on


If the refrigerator is working fine, you may have a bad door-switch. Open the refrigerator door, you will see two switches on top, the one on the left is for the lights; try to tweak it may just be stuck. If this does not work you have to replace it. You can double-check this by shining a flashlight behind the control panel and you can see the temp. and the other info. This means the panel is fine. You can also try to contact Sub Zero customer service, they may send you a new switch for free.
Good luck and I hope this help.
