We have an 80's oven and I need to replace the oven light. The bulb is a small bayonet bulb and I can't seem to find anything online (bunnings/mitre10) - all the oven lights appear to be edison screws or smaller screw type bases.

Can I use any normal incandescent bulb? The old one was a regular bulb and seems to have suffered from the heat exposure (the glass popped off the Base).

Thanks

Not sure where you're based, but LV Martin used to carry a good selection of oven bulbs.
I wouldn't have thought a standard bulb would cut the mustard

I've found that the "Lightbulb man " shop in town has a great stock of hard-to-get bulbs, reasonably priced. They will get unusual ones in.

I went out the  former LV Martin spares place in Ngauranga gorge on the 24 Dec, and they were closing down that day, so no more spares from them. The company providing service support for Smiths City has a different name, and some staff are transferring to that. F&P are relying on online sales, but the part I wanted was cheaper than the F&P store, and there was no freight cost. The world has continued to head to Hell in a handcart since Wisemans disappeared.

Just don't buy Chinese ones, as they don't last long, which what a lot of teh chain lighting shows sell. The bulb has to be a special one to go into an oven, due to the heat. You can't just put a normal bulb into it.  I have had good success with GE and philips bulbs.

How long ago did they disappear?  I haven't heard of them for years.

I had Narva bulbs fail every few months, supposedly rated at 300 deg.c. Switched to GE and haven't blown in over a year.

J A Russells/Stewarts/Radcliffe, Ideal or any other electrical wholesaler should have the common oven lamps on the shelf (always have everytime i need one) though Electroquip in Hamilton is good for the oddities and unusual fittings and sizes

Aren't these (GE and Philips) all made in China anyway?

Appliance store, espcially one with a workshop will certainly carry bulbs. After all, they also sell the appliances to start with :)
