How can I tell what Christmas light socket or bulb isn't working?


One my strand of Xmas lights for outdoors, one section doesn't light up. How can I tell where the problem is?

    I think that's what I need to do. Somewhere in that section there's a faulty wire or light breaking the circuit. I'll find it!

    I replaced each light in the section that won't light up (fingers hurt) and no dice. I think a socket must have an issue.

    Thanks, easylearningweb, yes, overlapping more than one strand is a good idea...so many more lights!
