Customer Questions & Answers

dimensions of Phillips 40-Watt T8 Intermediate-Base Light Bulb

I must have a bulb of 2 in. length and approx. 1in. diameter to fit in my Whirlpool Microwave (purchased from Home Depot).
Asked by: Anonymous
This bulb is too long (by 0.5in) for my Whirlpool microwave (model WMH53520cs-2). It's not equivalent to the Whirlpool (8206232A) bulb which is 2in. in length.

Will this fit my GE microwave bulb number WB25X10030

Asked by: Greg
Yes. I installed this one to replace WB25X10030 and it fit and worked fine. I only replace one side and could not tell any difference in the operation and lighting from the original that is still on the other side. The new bulb is slightly longer, but fits fine. Works the same as the original on bright and dim.

Will this replacement bulb fit Frigidaire Model # FMV152KSA

I have an over the range microwave. Both light bulbs underneath microwave are burned out. Would this be a suitable replacement for those bulbs? My owners manual does NOT specify which replacement bulbs to use underneath the microwave, only the one that works inside. Please advise. Thanks!
Asked by: JumpEJen
It should. I had a Frigidaire and it fit fine.

I'm not happy that these bulbs last so little. Really? 9 months on an average of 3 hours a day? Is there a CFL version?

Or something else that would last longer? $8 per 9 months' usage?
Asked by: LightBulbAnnoyed
The bulb is enclosed, so tends to burn out if you leave it on when you don't need it.

40-Watt Incandescent T8 Intermediate-Base Light Bulb is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from The bulb did fit into my microwave, and did work for about 6 weeks. Then, it just burned out. P... The bulb did fit into my microwave, and did work for about 6 weeks. Then, it just burned out. Put another one in, and it went out after 1 month. The funny thing is though is that we don't turn this light on veryoften. Obviously, I won't keep paying $4 for an inferior product. Philips should be ashamed of themselves.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't last very long... I always try to be fair. Truthfully, I have no way of knowing if this is the fault of the bulb or of my appliance, but here goes: I have an over-the-range microwave that uses these bulbs. After over a year of regular daily use, the manufacturer's bulb died. It more than died--it totally came apart. I purchased this bulb as a replacement as the only one I could find. While it didn't fall apart like the original bulb, it burned out after just a few months. Allowing for a fluke, I bought another. Disappointingly, it, too, burned out after only a few months. I accidentally purchased a couple of the lesser watt bulbs and decided to keep them for emergencies. One of them is installed right now and is on its second month. Whether it can last through a third month like its 40 watt brother only time will tell. However, I will be looking for a greater watt replacement of another brand to test my Philips theory. What I have now is no better than a nightlight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In-store Pickup Rocks Best thing about this was being able to order online for same day in-store pickup. Pickup was seriously the easiest thing I did that week. Didn't have to wander through an entire hardware store for a just a mere handful of bulbs. Always, always forget to buy these in a timely manner, because, frankly my life is too busy most of the time to remember to make a trip to one store for one, thanks HD for making it painless. Also, haven't noticed it having a shorter life, as some reviewers claim. Nah, pretty much a bulb...but I do make a point to always turn off when not in use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK replacement, but not optimum. These are no doubt good original replacement type Edison bulbs, but I don't know why new appliances still use these old fashioned type bulbs. I have since replaced these with LED types, and my stove top is now much better lighted and it uses MUCH less electricity as well. Home Depot should consider carrying LED type bulbs in this size. I had to order them directly from China to get them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As Described fits in Whrilpool Microwave under the hood Good Fit and as described. As of now no issues with reliability have been using for past 4 weeks

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lasts less than 2 months Same a review earlier this year. I have an over stove GE microwave and about to buy the 3rd set of replacement 120 volt 40 watt bulbs. Previous replacements last less than 2 months. Have just been doing without most of the last year. On the off chance that this was just a bad run for these bulbs and the issue has been corrected, here I go again.
