My oven light burnt out recently. After dismantling it I found a 40W 130V "appliance" bulb with a standard Edison connector. The bulb is slightly smaller than a normal incandescent bulb. Looking for replacements at the local stores, all the similarly sized and shaped bulbs list fans and fridge/freezer as acceptable uses. The few ones I can find that actually list ovens as a use case are the wrong shape, size or base.
So do I really need an "oven bulb", or will the fridge/freezer appliance bulb work?
