Wolf Products

Most Wolf products do not use LED style lights as the main light source.

Wolf does not recommend using an LED bulb as a replacement for a conventional bulb.

  • LED bulbs require a different voltage than what Wolf products provide to the light socket.
  • Using an LED bulb when the product is not specifically designed for an LED may damage the bulb and/or unit.
  • For units that allow different lighting levels, such as Wolf Ventilation hoods, an LED bulb may not work on all levels.

Any performance issues or damage resulting from the use of a part not recommended by Sub-Zero or Wolf will not be covered by the manufacturer's warranty.

Sub-Zero Products

Overhead Lighting

Depending on series and model number, LED bulbs may be used to replace standard incandescent light bulbs.

Accent Lighting

  • Accent lighting in a glass door Sub-Zero unit may be LED, depending on model and age.
  • For accent lighting in glass door models, refer to Sub-Zero LED Accent Lighting.

Purchase Bulbs

Refer to Sub-Zero Light Bulbs for bulb replacement instructions and part numbers.

  • When changing from incandescent to LED lighting, replace all bulbs at the same time, since the light colors are different.

The 2020 California light bulb ban does not affect appliances. Use the same style light bulb for older units.
