Question about Broan-NuTone N-8663RP Combination Light Fan Exhaust Fan
I have the same fan and it is a pain to replace bulbs. There are two "V" shaped springs that hold the diffuser in place on mine. I pull the diffuser down until the springs (actually heavy gauge rods) are fully extended, maybe 4-6 inches. I then tip the diffuser and get my hand in to remove and then replace the bulbs. If your units were "altered" by someone forcing them in the past, you may have bigger problems. The springs are hard to bend to get the diffuser down and the upper part of the springs actually rub on the metal housing of the fan. Perhaps a little WD40 where the springs enter the metal housing will help a bit.

I'm sorry to hear that the lights in your Sub-zero unit are not working. It is unlikely that all the bulbs went out at the same time. You most likely have a bad light switch. If you open the refrigerator door & look upwards you will see two white switches. The switch on the left controls the lights. The part number to this light switch is 7014646. We can supply you with light switch replacement instructions if you contact us directly. Make sure that you turn the unit off at the circuit breaker before changing the light switch.
If you do need to replace bad bulbs, you will want to first remove the light diffuser. This is the plastic cover that the lights shine through. To remove the diffuser, first pull the clips located on either side of the rear of the diffuser to a down position. This should free up the back of the diffuser, allowing it to swing down and be removed. The bulbs are a narrow 40W appliance bulb found at most home improvement stores.
