LED Christmas lights are growing in popularity due to their advantages over traditional incandescent lights. LEDs are more energy-efficient, they last longer, shine brighter and stay cold when lit, which eliminates the risk of fire or damage to your property. Still, LED light strands burn out once in a while.

Faulty socket

If your lights don't turn on when plugged in, your socket may not be working. To verify that your problem is with your light string rather than the socket, try plugging in another appliance. If your appliance doesn't work, then the problem is with your power source, not your lights.

Broken filaments

Broken filaments may prevent your LED lights from working. To fix this problem check the fuses, located in the female end of your light strand, for any broken filaments and replace your fuses as necessary.

Weak/broken circuit

If your plug isn't making full contact with your electrical circuit, your lights won't shine. Check the prongs on your plug to make sure they are fully plugged in. Spread the prongs outward and plug your lights in again. Then, check all the connecting lights and extension cords to make sure they are all fully plugged in, too.
