Where to get light bulb for oven?

Postby slmkhoo » Tue Dec 02, 2014 4:32 pm

Anyone know if there is an easily accessible place to buy a light bulb for an oven? Specifically a Philips E14, 25W, able to withstand up to 300C. Mine has blown and the spare parts place is very inaccessible, and we don't have a car. I've tried the place the sold the oven, Self-fix, Home-fix - all don't carry it. Anywhere else I can try? Thanks!

Try Sim Lim TOWER, basement level component shops.

Or my favourite online component store here:

At one point I just gave up. Bought a $1 LED flashlight and just leave it in the kitchen... cheap and reliable. Long lasting, too!

Haha! Yes, I'm doing that for now too. I generally bake only familiar things, so I know the timing well and don't really have to look often. Still trying to find an easy-to-reach place to get a replacement. Or maybe mail order?

Not sure about $1; I think mine cost about $5 from a neighbourhood store. It's one we got when my daughter went to a camp.
