Hoping to get a quick and easy answer to this..

I got 2 broken #89 bulbs on my machine and I have no spare ones. I do have extra #1251 ones.

I know it won’t work the other way around becAuse of the voltage difference, but I want to know if I can use the #1251 bulb to replace the broken #89.

No, if it lights at all it will be extremely dim.
