Porch light and Stove vent light to LED

The porch light and stove vent light are both non LED and not the conventional bayonet type either. Are there direct LED replacements for these bulbs without having to change the sockets? I saw something that looks like this at CW but in LED, expensive $19 each.
first is porch, second stove top vent lamp. Click here for CW's LED light.

I used one of the 36 LED panels I got on e-bay to replace my porch, stove, and all the lights in my Mirada..

Those lamps are 921's. If you look for LED replacements for that number you'll find many.

They make either barrel assemblies similar to the shape of the original bulbs or they make flat assemblies. Just be aware that the flat assemblies won't fit in all fixtures.

The ones in my photo get so hot very quickly. I'm surprised they don't start a fire, especially the black one from the stove vent lamp which puts out little light.
What lumens should I shoot for, will something in as low a 100-160 work or do I want 260? I guess space available for the bulb may dictate that.

I'd go for as high a lumen as you can find. If you limit your search to lamps that use the greatest possible number of 5050 or 5630/5730 LED's you'll get the highest amount of light out of the lamp.

I replaced all the bulbs in our RV with 24 5050 LED disc shaped lamps in bright white. I had to use a 42 LED bulb in the range hood light because of the limited amount of space. It's not very bright, but it's better than the incandescent lamp that was there.

There are many LED 921 type bulbs available. I changed both out and am happy with the results. The bulb over the stove isn't quite as bright as it used to be which we actually prefer. Some LEDs can cast a harsh bright light if they are too bright or the wrong color temperature.
I changed the outside porch light to an LED motion sensing light. Works well.

we've switched both of our trailers over to LED's and now i can see without getting a sunburn from the heat.

ordered on line out of China where all the bulbs appear to com eout of. 30 count was $38 Canadian shipped.

get the brightest white you can find. Natural daylight is the easiest to use.

Get the China made wedge mount from Amazon. 20 will cost the same as 1 at your local retailer. And watch lumens (the more the brighter) and I like natural daylight.

Remove some of the lens and if the bulbs are clear glass they're not LED. Since the mfg's are still putting incandescent bulbs in the newest RV's my bet is that yours are incandescent as well.
