Default LED bulbs in range hood

I want to replace the bulb in my range hood with an LED, mainly because the incandescent bulb crack. I see bulbs listed as replacements for appliances and range hoods, but has anyone used one and can you tell me how well it works?

I'm sick of replacing range lights every two months.

Especially when they break and I have to remove them with pliers.

I replaced my range hood bulb with a LED daylight one during summer last year, works great and have not had any issues.

I'm in the same boat. We use ours as a night light in the kitchen (so we don't destroy our feet on any toddler hidden booby-traps). It burns out about every 4 months though.

If they are standard type bulbs right now I have a collection of LED bulbs that I am selling. Going to be my next hobby business. I can probably do pretty good pricing on them also. I will also guarantee them for 1 year. I just need to know what the bulb looks like and what wattage you are now using. I am out of town till Thur. so can not check my own and see what it looks like. I have many standard type bulbs available I am also selling 4' T-8 replacement tubes Great replacement bulbs for those old fluorescent bulbs. These will come with a 2 year guarantee.

OK I will do a 5 watt LED standard bulb including shipping and sales tax for $9.50 a bulb. More bulbs would be less due to shipping costs. Four bulbs will ship for about the same cost as on . Bulb.

We've had good luck with the Cree bulbs from Home Depot. over half our house is running them. We saw $30-$40 a month drop in electric bill (3 young kids who leave the lights on all the time..)

Our range bulbs are a medium base I think what they call b base ? Ours burn out every six months on the dim setting. I haven't found any led bulbs in that size.

With out seeing the bulb I am kind of guessing here but I think that would maybe be considered a E-14 base. The regular lights are E-27 base. I may have those E-14 but am going to have to check with my supplier on that.
