Tips to Replace a Light Switch
- See light switch instructions by model below.
- Light switch instructions do not come with light switches when shipped.
- The switch is located above the unit behind the grille on the 500 and 600 Series models.
- Tools required are a Phillips head screw driver, T-20 Torx head screw driver, and pliers.
- The outer grille frame may need to be removed for complete access to switches.
- Make sure there is no power to the unit by turning off the circuit breaker.
- The switch wires may be very tight depending on the age of the unit. Firmly pulling the wires by hand should remove them from the light switch.
- If necessary, carefully pull at the base of the wire with a needle nose pliers to remove the wire from the light switch.
