Thanks! Glad the cost is dropping lately because I know I spent plenty on just one but that was a while ago. I thought the stove light was different but guess it is not.

The ones I bought a few years back worked great, but no longer seem available. The cost of LED's are dropping real fast. Replacements for pot lights in projects we do have seen the costs cut in half in less than a year. LED lighting at home too will be in the future for a while.
I took out the stove bulb today to compare and, yes, they are the same. Always thought it was a more mini version. That #14 looks interesting and may be good for anyone wanting less light for some of them. And, yes, these costs are much less than I paid a couple of years ago. Thanks again!

I added the led's as an option on my 21 that I picked up in March 2015. Per ETI soft white LEDs were not available at the time. Those LED fixtures were BRIGHT! Based on info on the forum I inserted parchment paper as a filter into all the fixtures and that has definitely improved the quality of the light to the point that I plan on no other mods to the lights. The light is not hot enough to even scorch the parchment paper so this is most probably a permanent fix for me since I don't think I'll own my beloved 21 more than 15 years! I did also change out the stove hood light to an LED. I'm very pleased with the stove hood LED as the light is brighter than the original. I do love my 21!

We ordered #14 but it does not fit. Also ordered #12. Does not fit even though they are 194.

Ordered #11 and it fit even though not 194. Gives very little light, only 5 lumens but wanted some of those for being up at night.

Still have to find a standard one that fits.

Is this for the stove hood?
A #12 fit ours , BUT, I had the spin the clip on the black socket that the wires come out of.
so that the socket was 'backed up' .

I was trying to get LEDs for the pancake lights, not the stove, however, the stove apparently takes the same kind of miniature wedge LED. Our lights are incandescent. So we are trying wedge LEDs to replace the incandescents. Want some warm and some cool.

I think the escape lights are led panels stuck to the back of the fixture and a wire goes to the socket.

jxoco, we do not have LEDs. Our originals are all incandescents.

Okay, now I think I have it. The 194's we bought will fit the stove. They will not fit any of the others. We only tried them in the others, not the stove. So have to go back and try them in the stove and I expect they will fit, however, don't need the four we bought!

And still need to find out what the pancake fixtures take to replace the wedge incandescents.

Our incandescents merely push into place so I expect that any LEDs for those spots will also push into place without any change to any wires? Who knows about that?
