My sub zero fridge just had the inside light go out and also the control panel inside the fridge is out.

Randy 43 :

Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX iam happy to help you with your question today..do you have a model number? and was the door left open for a longer time than usual?

Customer:

Model 680. No the door was opened to get some OJ and everything was fine with the light on. When I opened the door to put the OJ back the inside light did not come on and the inside panel lights are not on. I am not totally sure but I think the fridge is still cooling. The freezer is for sure working with the lights on (it is a side by side).

Randy 43 :

Ok, thx , can you try flicking the little white switches on the ceiling ,when you open the door ? one is for the fan other is for the lites ,push them in or just flick them with your finger, do you see a momentary lite come on?

Customer:

Yes the light came back on for both the panel and inside lights.

Randy 43 :

thx, your lite switch is going bad , you will need to get this switch replaced
