These switches snap into place. Carefully remove them by releasing one side so the panel is not damaged. The above URL will have a picture of a similar switch to the one in question.

My sub zero 600 series has no light in fridge nor on control panel

There will be two switches per compartment, one is the fan switch, the other is for the lights... Remove the top compartment vent panel, the switches will be accessed from above... remove the wires and push them down into the fridge... you can test them by setting a meter to "continuity" test and pressing the paddle of the switch to see if it lets current through.
SUB-ZERO machines are more serial number dependent when ordering parts...

Sub zero leaks water

You need to replace that water line, except it's not on top on a 632. And those weren't available in 1994. Do you maybe have a 590?

What is causing my sub zero moled 590 , made in feb 93 to gradually warm up?

yeah vacuuming behind the fridge is a good start this will help the fridge preform better as when dust builds up on the condenser it will cause the discharge to be hotter than it should be making the cooling in the case not as efficient. i would start by removing the pannel in the fridge and seeing if any ice is on the evaporator

SUb-Zero 650 fridge lighting issue

Just a bad door switch. Turn the unit off, remove the upper grill, then remove the cover over the switches. there are 2. 1 with a black backside, and one that is all white. you want to replace the all white one with a new all white one. it just has 2 wires, doesn't matter what order they go in. pull em off and pop that thing out, then snap the new one into place. all of this should be done with the power off and the door open. Good Luck!

Sub zero light out

Make sure all the bulbs aren't bad. (it happens more than you'd think) If not try wiggling the light switch at the top of the unit. You can usually get the lights to at least flash. Take the top grill off and either unplug the unit or shut it off at the breaker. Take off the switch cover, remove the wires from the light switch. The light switch is all white, the fan switch has one black side. pop the switch down through the frame and then pop the new one up into the hole. Reattach wires and reinstall cover.

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.

Ice maker will not stop!

You are going to have to replace the dispensor module. Go to for your local parts distributor or service agent. The factory number is 800-222-7820 and they are very helpful.
