Christmas lights may be a source of headaches, but there are different things one can do to save money by repairing their own Christmas lights. Dead fuses are easy to replace, requiring only a new fuse and a screwdriver. Dead bulbs can also be swapped out for new bulbs at astonishingly low cost. However, it should be noted that damaged wiring usually means that the entire set of Christmas lights will have to be replaced. When isolating problems and determining their causes with regards to Christmas lights, one can use specific tools to help find the culprit, which may very well be a dead bulb or two.
- Check to see if a fuse has blown, and replace it if necessary.
- If the problem is with the bulb itself, you can cheaply and easily obtain individual replacement bulbs.
- On the other hand, if the wire itself has been damaged or frayed, you may need to replace the whole string.
