my pumpkin vines have plenty of blossoms but they’re not setting fruit.

Both conditions will cause all male blossoms. This is likely what is happening. You won't get fruit until the conditions are right for a female flower, which will have a mini fruit attached to it. Unfortunately, unless these are in a controlled environment, it will just be a waiting game for conditions to become favorable.
