Subject: Plugs


Name: John


Question: Exterior plugs one in front of house and one at rear of house do not work(power washed prior to them quitting) No breakers are kicked. Any suggestions?

Answer: Hi John,

The outside plug are probably GFCI protected. A GFCI is one of those outlet that have the "TEST and RESET" button on them. My guess is one of them got wet when you power washed them. You may have to wait for them to dry out and then reset them or the GFCI could have gone bad and will need to be replaced.
