I strung up all the lights on our freshly cut Christmas tree (let me tell you, this tree doesn't have a soft spot anywhere and getting the lights up was like playing with a porcupine).
Every time I plug the tree in 2/3 of the tree blows out.
We've discovered a bulb that acts like a fuse and it blows out instead of maybe an entire string blowing out. We've changed that bulb a few times but the darn thing keeps tripping.
In all honesty, I so don't want to have to unravel all the lights off the tree as Bob has suggested.
So I'm wondering if there is anyone out there that has had a similar problem?
I'm wondering if I should put in another extension cord and run half the lights off a separate plug. Hey, it's all I got and I'm not sure the lights were made to have all 800 run off one circuit.
Wish me luck.
If you hear a roar sometime tomorrow it will be me, unraveling the darn strings off the tree.
Figures this season wouldn't start out easy.
