The Bathroom, Kitchen, Garage or outside outlets stopped working.
These areas of your home have a special device called a G(round) F(ault) C(ircuit) I(nterrupter) receptacle which are very sensitive to moisture and water; required by the National Electrical Code, they create a safer electrical system for you and your family. They have the ability to protect many receptacles; meaning you only need a few in your home to protect those vital areas. If an outlet is not working in one of these areas, you should look around for the goofy outlet with a button in the middle and hit “Reset”. They are often behind a counter-top appliance, or a cabinet in the garage but, rest assured, they are there. Simply reset them and power will be restored.
