Electrical appliances or equipment not working?
This may seem obvious, but quite frequently, your equipment is not turned on or plugged in properly. Even if you are sure it is, double-check anyway and inspect the cord as well as the plug for damage. If that does not solve the problem, check your circuit breakers.
Outlets not working in the kitchen, bathroom, garage, or outdoors?
Most likely a GFI outlet or plug has tripped. Check the GFI outlets, usually the button below the plug, or check the circuit breakers. Some circuit breakers have a red mark to show when a breaker has tripped. If power tools or equipment are plugged in to the area where a circuit has tripped, make sure they are turned off before flipping the breaker back to the “on” position.
