How to Change the Fuse on Christmas Lights

Overview

Christmas is a time for decorations and lights. If you find that you have a dead strand of lights and you've tried everything to get them to work, the fuses of the lights might be your problem. Instead of throwing the old Christmas lights away, change the fuse and you get your lights working again.

Replace the cover.

Step 7

Plug the Christmas lights in.
