hello guys i need help before i call an electrician. i lost all power at my kitchen counter and i was looking it up on the web and i saw one plug with a gfci outlet and it wont reset. and fix on this? or is rhis even the problem
Some installers put multiple GFCI plugs on the same circuit. Check for them through out the kitchen. Look at the breaker panel for the kitchen breaker. (If it is labeled) or a breaker that is adjar. If now are showing ajar, lightly tap the breakers toward the off position. If it moves over easy, it has blown. You can also just shut off the breakers and push them back on hard to reset. Hope this helps.
They go bad. If it won’t reset, there is either another one in the line before it or it’s bad and needs to be replaced.
Not sure if all power, but for sure this may be series connected and affecting other outlets. Other outlets with no power ?
Could be the problem. They don’t last forever. Replace it and see what happens, then go from there.
Also could be a tripped breaker. Sometimes as they get older, they won’t trip all the way for you to know it’s tripped except for turning it off and back on
The breaker inside the the GFCI wears out over time. Try replacing that oulet first
I will check fuse in panel first if everything is ok look for another gfci in same circuit if not replace
panel is good. only gfci in the same curcuit. i’ll try to change it first tomorrow
Kill the breakers in the fusebox for the kitchen and bathroom, the swap places on your GFCI breakers- if the bath pops- you’ll know it;s the GFCI.
i pulled it out to see if i can replace it myself and placed it back in and now its working lol
Depends of the amperage of the outlet, and how many other appliances are plug into other outlets on that circuit
Sounds like a loose connect. I’d check those again. Loose connections build up heat due to extra resistance.
Stick a fork in it and double check to make sure there is no power!make sure your reset it and cycle the the breaker. If not swap a different outlet in the house and see if it changes.
