I have one of these rather large side by side fridge freezers with the
icemaking gadgets. On the whole i'm really happy with it but i'm a
little dissapointed that even though i've only had the unit for just
over a year the bulb in the drinks dispenser has blown for the second
time. It's a Bosch unit but uses a special Maytag bulb. It's about
3cm long. squarish with an SES fitting. Cost of the bulb is £7 and
only seems to be available from Bosch or Maytag spares. Anyone know
where I can buy these cheaper. TIA, Fraser
Not much good as i've got the bosch 12 month warranty that's expired
and the complimentary 2nd year John Lewis extension specifically
excludes consumables like bulbs. Checked lampman.com but there's
nothing similar I can see in there online product brochure.
Maytag have a modification to prolong the bulb life - it's a resistor
that fits in series with the bulb wiring. Repair kit no 12001842.
They came out and fitted it under the 5 yr warranty as I was going
through a bulb every 6 mths.
