Customer Question
We have a 9...

We have a 9 ft. Westinghouse Surelit tree the top half of all three sections a not work. How should we proceed to fix it?q

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

We took our tree out today, but just some in the middle section went out last year, but not the entire top half of that section.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes, or purchase a couple of string lite to add. We've tried checking the fuse on two sections,but nothing happened.

I suggest getting a LIGHT KEEPER at any home center, Walmart or Ace Hdwr. It is a non contact voltage tester and a trigger action vibrator the allows finding the bad lamp and making it work.
