    Incandescent Christmas Light Tester

    Commercial Grade


    The Magic Box commercial grade Christmas light tester isolates twisted bulbs, empty sockets, and bad fuses by forcing electrical current through a non-working set. You can start repairing your defective incandescent lights instead of trashing them. It makes 'dollars and sense' to easily repair a set as opposed to throwing it away. Essential for lighting professionals and crews, this little box will pay for itself in no time.

    NOTE: To reduce possibility of electrical shock when using this machine, avoid holding the string of lights in your hands while testing. Extension cords sold separately.

    Test-100 Incandescent Light Tester Instructions

    This Light Tester is designed to work with incandescent mini light sets only. The light tester will only work with one string of lights at a time. When working with trees you must remove any tape and disconnect the clusters of plugs, in order to isolate the individual sets.

    1. Plug the light tester into a standard 120-volt outlet and flip up the on/off power switch.
    2. Plug the light set into the outlet located on the front of tester.
    3. Push in and release the large red button. One of 4 things should happen:
      1. Lights should kick back on. Then find and replace burnt out bulbs.
      2. A "buzz" is heard in light string. This indicates a missing or broken bulb. Press big button as needed to track down buzz sound. Replace bad bulb, lights should come on
      3. The box itself buzzes. This indicates multiple problems on string, see probe instructions below.
      4. One half of the string is lit. Pull one of the lit bulbs out of socket, press and release big button. This should kick on bad half of string.
    4. Probe Instructions: If the box buzzes you have multiple issues on this string. The probe will tell you if you have power to a particular socket. Plug probe into front of tester, remove first bulb on string. Place probe into socket making contact with one side of socket at a time, if there is power to that socket a light will shine from behind plug on front of box. Continue to probe string at every 5th bulb or so. You should be able to isolate the problems this way. Be sure to check the bulbs you pull out to be sure they have two good wires.

    NOTE: To reduce possibility of electrical shock when using this machine, avoid holding the string of lights in your hands while testing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works miracles! This replaces another I had for 15+ years. I have saved many hundreds of dollars with the tester by extending the life of Christmas lights by multiple years. I have already rehabed 6 or 7 sets of lights this season.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quickly located the issue I had with with my tree and has repaired over 15 sets of lights I ordered this last season, this was the best price by far and the product flat out works. I bought a relatively expensive bethlehem lights tree a few years back. first year I have lighting issues and I could not locate the problem using the usual methods, Bethlehem lights sent me a tester specific to this tree, as I wasn't the only one having issues, still no luck. This little box got the lights back in order within 5 minutes. I repaired a bunch or additional light strings with this unit and this year also repaired at least 7 more. One trick for anyone chasing an issue with large strings (over 100 lights) if the issue is not located using the standard method, than remove the lead bulb from the other sections that are working, This will correct the out of synch section. At first I thought this unit was a one hit wonder and wouldn't work on large sets, once I used this trick i have repaired all but one set of lights. Repairing my tree alone made this unit pay for itself. you will be glad you bought this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Commercial Grade Christmas Light Tester We have a professional holiday lighting division in our landscape company. We have used units like this in the past, and found this one here to be a better value than our wholesale distributor offers. Works great. Sturdy housing will take some abuse. Great value.
