    Refrigerator LED Light Bulb, SEE HERE!

    By lighthouse

    You just did a search to find a LED light bulb for your refrigerator and you ended up finding a LED bulb that someone may be advertising as a refrigerator LED light bulb, but it does not say any such thing on the packaging. The incandescent bulbs you previously used would specifically say appliance bulb on the packaging. The packaging would also supply acceptable applications for the bulb, such as the refrigerator or perhaps the oven.

    Most of what you will find available in LED bulbs are not specifically labeled refrigerator LED light bulb or appliance bulb. Most simply give a vague usage application for “ceiling fans” or household applications. So is this the testing phase where manufacturers avoid being accountable for any problematic issues by avoiding more specific labeling? It makes one wonder.

    If you are really set on using a LED light bulb for your refrigerator, proceed with caution. Check the labels intently for pertinent information regarding the possible applications for the LED light bulb. You are basically out on your own limb unless you find one that says it is approved for refrigerators, good luck with that.

    Recently I inquired about a LED light bulb that caught my eye at Lowes. The size was small and compact, like that of a bulb that would fit the refrigerator application. Since I had a gift card I was actually ok with the $11 dollar price tag, I simply needed to know if the bulb was approved for damp locations. The problem for me though was that I could not read the fine print, that these days seems to be getting finer and finer. So I asked a young store associate to check it, and she told me that it did say that the bulb was approved for damp locations.

    So I went ahead and purchased the bulb to initiate my own personal refrigerator LED light bulb test. The clear LED bulb, pictured above, claims to be a 40w replacement that uses 4.8 watts of electricity with 300 lumens and a rating for some 30,000 hours. The packaging supplies an estimated energy cost of $0.58 per year based on 3 hours a day of usage at 11 cents a kilowatt. For that same 3 hours a day, it gives an expected life usage of 27.4 years.

    I did double check the packaging’s caution information, where it states it is only for 120 volt 60hz circuits. But continues on to state that the bulb is “suitable for damp locations”. It also states that it may not be compatible with all dimmers, although it claims to be dimmable. The warranty on this 40 watt LED replacement bulb is for 3 years, and it clearly states on the package; “If it fails or you are not satisfied with it’s performance, return to store for a replacement”. It goes on to state under the warranty information that “This replacement is the sole remedy available and liability for incidental or consequential damage is expressly excluded. So the manufacturer will replace the light bulb but does not want to be held accountable to the point of actually being liable. So what else is new these days?

    As of this posting the LED bulb has been in service for about 2 weeks without issue. I had previously used 25 watt appliance bulbs, so the output of light is actually quite pleasing, it’s much more than I am used to. Should the bulb last half as long as it is rated for, it will certainly outlast the life of the refrigerator and pay for itself. Should it fail for whatever reason I will update this article with the necessary information.

    Update: After 8 months of usage, this led bulb has shined brilliantly with no problems whatsoever!
