Hey there,

Newbie here and was hoping this would be the right community to ask about this problem. If I sound like a dummie please forgive me, this is all very foreign stuff to me

So I have a pre-lit tree, and I'm pretty sure the fuse blew. It was plugged in, then unplugged, plugged it back in, lights flickers, pretty sure I heard a slight *snap* then went out. Outlet still works, so it's definitely a problem with the tree itself.

Everywhere I've looked online I'm finding that getting a new adaptor (GT-30V12) will be next to impossible. GE's own website is sold out, and it's not a Prime option on Amazon. Went to the Lowe's where I purchased it last year, they don't carry it solo (although I'd be lying if I said I wasn't tempted to swipe one off a display tree of the same model but, ya know... Santa's watchin').

Instead, they gave me a $1.50 two-pack of 125-volt GE fuses. Figured I could just replace the fuse. But I'm having a hell of a time figuring out where on this thing I could even do that, or if the fuse is even IN the adaptor. (There's a separate foot pedal that controls the lights, that connects from the adaptor to the tree itself, but it wouldn't be in there, would it?) Pics below I just want to know how I can replace the fuse, or if that's even possible. Trying to save the$15 and week-plus of an unlit tree that the alternative would require. Thank you in advance!

If there is a fuse inside, then you're going to have to pop the cover open since there aren't any screws.

Or the fuse could be in the foot pedal if it's sitting between the supply and the lights. GO after whatever has screws on it.

Thanks for the feedback! I'll def try the fix first, but at least there's a quick replacement option there. Merry Christmas guys.
