It May Be Just a Bulb but It's a Great Little Bulb
This great little bulb is actually even better than the one that came with the fridge. At first we were worried because it arrived wrapped in brown-paper-bag paper and a bubble envelope, I do believe it was, instead of a more protective box, but it was unharmed and works great, shines brightly and has made us satisfied customers who can once again see inside the glasses we're filling with ice and water from our refrigerator's dispenser area. No more overflows or guess work.

Only Lasted 3 Weeks
Used as occasional night light and only lasted 3 weeks.
Much shorter than the original bulb's life.
Not worth replacing unless bulb is improved.

They don't last
New frig.with the dispenser with light. The bulb lasted four (4) months ok bought a new bulb on 2/5/12. In the evening we use it as a night light so to speak it's a good light source for such a small bulb. Today is 3/6/12 and two nights ago it went out last one did same thing but when I took it out and lightly flick it put it back in it worked. The original bulb lasted for aprox. another week or two and stayed out. Wonder how much more life is left on this one? This is a single element bulb I could not find them except on internet. That's even ok but they need to make them last longer. Why does GE make it so only a single element bulb will work?
Maybe it's the new frig. wiring etc. would like other input on bulb?
Well 3/15/2012 it went out and did not come back one. Not bad lasted 1 month and 10 days. After the initial outage the time line is way to close to be a coincidence.
Very sad I liked having that light. I am going to do a little research to find out if another type of bulb will work.
