Replacement Bulb

I have been trying to find a replacement light bulb used in the entry stairs of my Valencia 36a DP. It is the glass tube type with metal caps on both ends. It has what I think is a Sv6.6 mm base and it is 1.45 inches (37mm) long. I found lots of 211, 212 and 214 type bulbs including LED replacements, but all of them are either too big a diameter or too long or short. I even called Bulbtown.com and was told they don't carry it and didn't know where I could get one. Any suggestions?

They linked you above to the correct bulb. They're called Festoon bulbs and can be found in LED version. I replace my step lights with the LEDs.

I've looked at the Festoon bulbs, but they have a diameter of 8.5mm versus mine at 6.6 mm and they are 1.7 inchesl long versus 1.45. Will the Festoon even fit in the prongs of the light fixture?

Try an automotive store and ask for Dome Light Bulbs.

There are several different lengths and diameters of the festoon bulbs. You just haven't located the right one yet.
As one person said above, they are used in dome lights.
