Might be time to replace with LED bulbs. Can you still get replacement bulbs?
I remember my father untangling cords with large bulbs, checking them in the yard, then hanging them. By then there were always some that didn’t work, generally in an inaccessible place. And then there were the series strings, hug frustration!
Taking them down and storing them always led to more breakage to enjoy next year. The whole process also contributed to his cirrhosis of the liver.
For myself, I moved over to the cheap Chinese strings, buying a few in January of each year. Just unwind them in place. At the end of the season, take them down with garden shears and mix in with wrappings and packaging. East peasy, a five minute process. Still have the cirrhosis problem though. It must be genetic.
Every time one would pop it made me jump. But as for LED’s, forget it. I like the big old clunky ones.
