Question about Panasonic NN-2505A Microwave Oven
I am having trouble finding replacement light bulbs (2) for the over-range hood lamp of my Panasonic NN-2505A microwave/hood. The bulbs say "CM 20W125V" but do not match any appliance-type bulbs I can find online anywhere. THey measure about 2.25" long and are almost 1" in diameter, and the glass bulb is somewhat oblong/cylindrical (not round like a typical appliance bulb). Does anyone know where I can get this type of bulb, or whether I can use a different appliance bulb with the same rating of 20w 125v?
These are 20W 120V bulbs with what's called the intermediate base. The new Panasonic part number is ANE6030540AP and you can get them at Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com or Vance Baldwin at http://www.vancebaldwin.com You should also be able to get them at local appliance parts stores, Lowe's (or similar) or even a large grocery store. You can also use Sharp part # RLMPT0003YBE0 from either of the above sites.
