Help with Fridge Lamp


Hi,
My friend has one of these American style fridge / freezers (Whirlpool) and the lamp has gone. They are quoting about 16 quid to replace it. It is a 40w 250v ES27 lamp made by Sylvania and has the word "Appliance" printed on it. I want to know if there is something special about these as there are other lamps with the same specs for about a quid. Is there anything stopping her using one of these ?
Thanks in advance,
Graham.
P.S the lamp is at the bottom of this page : http://www.espares.co.uk/bin/venda?ex=co_wizr-xapian&threshold &bsref=cometspares&morelike=&searchex=&itemsperpageP&param1=3&searchinvt=1&A=Refriger ation&A=Refrigeration&A=Refrigeration&A=Refrigeration&D=art721&D=art721&D=ar t721&U=Whirlpool&U=Whirlpool&U=Whirlpool&U=Whirlpool&U=Whirlpool&carryfields =A,D,xptpl,B,U&A=Refrigeration&D=art721&xptpl=wz_xapian_keyword&B=&U=Whirlpo ol&srchopt=A,D,U

Its nothing to do with the cold, they are rough duty lamps to cope with shock and vibration.

I hate ripoff trades people but to be honest 16 for a visit and something done, even a three minute job isn't bad!
On the other hand you will get a load of bulbs for 16, and if you have to change one a quarter........?

16 is the cost of the lamp. Not for somebody to come out and do it :-)
