Hiya,

Take the old bulb with you to the store. I have done a million Hampton Bay fan and do not recall any that used anything other than a 60W bulb. They do make a new unit that used a florescent bulb but every incandescent bulb was a 60W. Take the old bulb in and the clerk with take it from there.

If it is not a standard base I assume it is either a fluorescent or halogen bulb. 13 watt says fluorescent. While it is true that Hampton Bay is only carried at Home Depot, light bulbs are not brand specific. Take the bulb to light stores, Grainger, until it matches up. I've heard stories about some Hampton Bays using bulbs that Home Depot does not carry.

Hiya,
You need to go to a lamp store that specializes in lamps only, or an electrical suppy store.
HomeDepot's do not carry all the Hampton Bay bulbs!
