Hi, I am looking for a lightbulb for my LG fridge (I believe it's that same part as for the Kenmore fridge - part # 6912JK2002E).
Can I use just any plain incandescent 40 watt bulb ?
The actual part (6912JK2002E) seems to sell for $17-$22 everywhere. One place even sells it for $45.71 (BestlightCA - http://www.amazon.ca/LG-Electronics-.../dp/B00AH5ZZ4E
Is it just me or is it ridiculous to pay that much for a 40 watt incandescent lightbulb.
One of my local service shops told me that I can easily use a plain bulb that I can purchase at a Dollar Store for a $1.00
I just wanted to confirm that it is safe and that I am not going to set my house on fire.
Is there anything special about the authentic part or is it just an overpriced regular bulb?
Can I use a energy saving CFL bulb 9W = 40W ??
Thank you on advance for any assistance with this.
