Take a minute to look around your house and the various lights you have. They’re not just in the living room, kitchen and bedrooms, you’ll find them in the garage, outside the home, and in utility rooms. But, what do you do if a kitchen oven light bulb goes?

We recommend replacing an oven bulb with a trusted brand such as Samsung, Osram and Crompton Lamps, you can rest assured you’re choosing a brand that’s reliable.
Due to the high temperature generated inside an oven, a halogen or incandescent light bulb can be relied on to operate up to 300°C and fit many different makes of domestic ovens and rotisseries.
Halogen light bulbs are made from a quartz glass material which can resist the high temperatures of an oven and the light bulbs are manufactured with heat resistant components for reliable performance.
No, LED light bulbs do not have the heat resisting properties of a specialist light bulb designed to operate in the high temperatures of an oven.
We recommend the use of a halogen or incandescent light bulb designed specifically for this purpose.

my large toaster oven does not have a light in it, is there a light i can put in it?
Does the toaster oven have a light bulb socket? or just no light at all – if no light at all then there is no retrospective solution we could provide.
We have a 2020 GE Range which came with a Sylvia 120 V – 40 W bulb that is burned out.looking at information on line for our range JCB840SKSS says we should use 3 different manufacturers that do not have the same socket ????? What’s with that,!!!
Hi Don, I’ve looked up the oven’s instructions online – and it is very vague on the type of light bulb that should be used. Either way, we don’t stock 120V oven lightbulbs, so I don’t think we have anything we can offer you. Sorry we can’t help.
How does the ban on the sale of halogen bulbs affect this? My oven is still being sold with halogen bulbs but they’re increasingly difficult to source replacements.
As oven appliance bulbs are specialist in that they need to withstand high ambient temperatures, then these types of lamps have an exemption rule allowing them to still be manufactured and sold.
