It is probably the switch - they go bad with some regularity. See this link http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-subzero+690-%3d%3di1557694&PartID=1557694

You can't buy the part from them anymore - call subzero and get the parts dealer nearest you.

As you will see the light switch is easy to replace - just open the top panel to your unit (after turning the unit off) and unplug the wiring harness. Then as you see in the photo of the part in the link above there is a small retaining clip that you just apply a little pressure to to push the switch through. New switch is installed in the reverse order. I haven't ordered one of the switches in a while but I think they are not more than $10.

My sub zero 690 has the fridge & freezer light out as well as the screen


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.

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.

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


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.

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.

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.
