SOURCE: Correct wattage bulb in Simpson

if you are refering to the light inside the oven, I dont think there is a problem with wattage as the oven is rates to high wattage
and it is also inside the oven, so in an area that can cope with heat.

if possible check remove the old bulb and check the wattage on the glass or on the side of the fitting.

I personally would recommend that a 40W should be suitable.

I hope this was useful

Bottom oven lights keep burning out.


The oven bulb is different from an appliance bulb. The glass and base are specific for the high temperature application that is seen in a oven

The link from sears shows a sample of an oven bulb and the price represents the special characteristics.

I have seen where some bulbs are rated at 130 volts?

This link from Amazon relays some of the one star reviews of the appliance light used in the oven application. All ovens are maybe not equal where the heat may be more significant in one make over another.

My neff oven light keeps blowing. New one lasts about 2 weeks. Has happened twice


Hi Clayton



The replacement oven bulbs are special high temperature (300 degrees C) capable bulbs. Please confirm that you are fitting the correct high temperature replacement. You probably are fitting these, but I mention it as other standard miniature Edison Screw (MES) bulbs will fit, but fail pretty soon) If the correct high temperature type is being fitted, check that the power (Wattage) is correct for the lamp housing. If it is too high, say 40 Watts instead of say 25 Watts, it may run too hot and give the short life you are experiencing.

If everything is correct and the replacement is equivalent to the original one, then it might just be that the bulbs have been roughly treated by the retailer, transit etc. These bulbs are conventional filament lamps and are very delicate and prone to early failure or malfunction when exposed to vibration. I recently sent away for a replacement that arrived by mail and although very well packed, it succumbed to death through vibration. I now have to pay the often higher price at retailers as these bulbs are likely to fail when mailed to your home and purchase on the Internet may not be an option.

Cant remove glass cover to replace bulb on Simpson La Stella Atlas series oven


I have a Simpson Atlas Mira. Was having a hard time getting the glass cover off too so looked on the net for a solution. Couldn't find one so I persevered and sorted it...
The glass cover has a screw-off thread (like a glass jar) which unscrews anti-clockwise (lefty loosey). I had to give it a good few wiggles and pulls before it would start unscrewing. I also had to use a damp towel to get a proper grip - it's a slippery little bugger - but I got it in the end!
Hope this helps someone - good luck!

I don't know what wattage I need for the bulb


You can fit a 15 or 25 watt bulb, as long it it is the correct thread, and it is able to withstand 300 degree temperature.
This is very important, otherwise it will blow with the heat.
Hope this helps.
