Can I use a regular light bulb in a refrigerator?

Most GE Appliances refrigerators (fresh food and freezer) use 40 watt appliance bulbs. Some models use a 60 watt bulb. This is not an appliance bulb, but an incandescent bulb. If the LED light is shaped like an incandescent bulb, you can replace it without the need of a technician.

In this regard, is there a difference between appliance bulb and regular?

Ovens and Refrigerators – The typical light in your oven or fridge is the familiar incandescent A-shape. The difference is the slightly smaller, incandescent A15 bulb (instead of A19) is appliance rated. These bulbs are usually 25 or 40 watts, run on 130 Volts, and are often shatterproof.

Beside above, what happens when fridge light goes out? If your refrigerator light is not coming on, it may be that the bulb has reached the end of its lifespan and has burned out. Check the bulb to see if it has a dark area in the bulb or broken and loose filament. When you remove the light bulb, do take a quick look at the empty socket.

In this manner, what kind of lightbulb goes in a refrigerator?

Refrigerator: Usually takes a 25- to 40-watt standard base appliance bulb, but some refrigerators use a T8 intermediate base bulb. Dryer: Most dryers use a 10-watt, 120-volt C7 bulb.

Does it matter what light bulb I use?

When it comes to how much light you get from a light bulb, watts don't matter. Light isn't measured in watts. It's measured in foot-candles or lumens. That means this bulb produces approximately the same lumens as a standard 60-watt incandescent bulb.
