Sub-Zero 500 and 600 Series Refrigerator Light Bulbs

Topics:

  • How many light bulbs are in a 500 or 600 Series refrigerator?
  • What type of light bulbs are used in a 600 refrigerator?
  • Is the light bulb in a 500 or 600 Series a 40-watt bulb?
  • Can light bulbs for a 500 or 600 Series be purchased locally?
  • What size bulb is behind the control knob in a 500 Series unit?

Answer:

Purchase replacement light bulbs locally from a hardware store, web retailers, or from a Factory Certified Parts Distributor.

  • For freezer bulbs, refer to 500 and 600 Series Freezer Light Bulbs.
  • For model 648PRO, refer to 648PRO Lighting.
  • Refer to the table below for bulb specifications.
    • The original bulb or socket may be 75 watts. However, Sub-Zero recommends a 40-watt replacement light bulb.
      • Sub-Zero does not recommend using a bulb greater than 40 watts.
      • Using a lower watt bulb than Sub-Zero recommends will not harm the unit. However, the lighting may be noticeably different.
    • 500 and 600 Series refrigerator light bulbs are not blue tinted, and the blue tinted bulbs in Classic (Formerly Built-In) models will not work in 500 or 600 Series units.

For instructions on how to replace the light bulbs, refer to:

If the lights do not work after replacing the bulbs, there may be an issue with the light switch. See Refrigerator or Freezer Light Switch Information.
