Heat From Lights & LEDs

Has anyone noticed the 12v 921 blubs turning dark and the white recepticles they plug into turning brown from the heat?? Is this normal? Also, has anyone played with replacing these with LED's? How did it work out??

Make sure that you have the correct wattage bulbs in the lamps.

There are several bulb types with the T5 Wedge base. These are in our 23FBS:

Range hood: 912, 12 v., 12 w., T5 wedge base
Overhead lamps and bathroom lamp: 921, 12 v., 16 w., T5 wedge base
Over-bed lamps: 158, 3 w., T3-1/4 wedge base
Clearance: 194, 5 w., T5 wedge base

You might consider going to a lower wattage bulb although we have had no problems with lens discoloration.
