Help with lighting/socket unit under kitchen cabinet

    Hi there,

    I live in an apartment that got kitted out from international companies... all of the toilets and built in appliances are all strange and it's nearly impossible to get things replaced/fixed. I had an electrician out who told me he had never seen anything like the unit I have in the kitchen (under cabinet unit with 2 sockets and 2 spot lights) so I'm stuck. Would anyone be able to identify what kind of bulb/light I need (both of them are gone)? Also the glass cover that is held in with a metal ring is missing... any thoughts on where I get those? I'm a new user so can't post links/photos, but if you think you can help I can link you photos privately!

    Any advice/sympathy is welcome! Thanks for reading.

    -B

    Looks like 20watt capsule halogen
    Most electrical wholesalers stick them
    Glass replacement might be trickier.

    I thought that's what I needed at first but there's only a small hole in the base so they don't fit... do 1 pin bulbs exist??

    Have seen those type of units think they might have come from Lidl or Aldi but don't know about the replacement bulbs, might be an idea to take one out and bring it to a wholesalers as they are probably your best bet.

    Simplest to replace entire fitting with these. They come apart and you can get them flush. Get your electrician to do it. Might need a transformer.

    from the picture, that single hole is not the base. Where the writing is on the fitting itself (12 volt) the lamp is inserted there, the lamp is parallel to the glass...attached photo....you will need a 12volt capsule lamp with G4 base pins
