Default What lamp/bulb to use in socket marked LR96300 / SL-27# ?

I have a chandelier that has says "Type A" near its base and then has three sockets, each marked with "LR96300" and "SL-27#". What kind of lamps can I use in these sockets? The reason I ask is because I've been using Sylvania CFL's like the one below but these always die in the chandelier in like 2-3 weeks and there's a lot of crackling and flickering when I'm using them in that chandlier and nowhere else (the same bulbs from the same pack work in other lamps just fine). So I figured that something is definitely up with the chandelier or the wiring for it, maybe even with the switch itself. What exactly, I don't know. So before I call the landlord to send over someone to take a look at it, I thought I'd make sure I'm not doing anything wrong on my end. What kind of lamps can I use in these? Any thoughts would be appreciated!
