Check to see if the outlet is controlled by a switch. Check to see if any circuit breakers are tripped or if any fuses have blown. Check to see if any GFI receptacles have tripped. Check light bulbs and replace if necessary.
GFCI stands for Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter, it’s an electrical device that protects by detecting potentially hazardous ground faults and quickly disconnecting power from the circuit. GFCI’s should be installed in the kitchen, bathroom, garage and outside outlets.
Except in the case of GFI / AFI circuit breakers which are susceptible to moisture and or weather conditions, the fuses or circuit breakers should not trip. Check to see if a plugged in appliance or poor cord is causing the problem.
Central air conditioners or heat pumps may cause a noticeable slight dimming on start up. Lights may flicker or dim to startup of some appliances or motor driven equipment. Check with the local utility company for possible defects in the supply source.
In order to reset a breaker on your electrical panel, you must push the breaker firmly to the “off” position and then push it back to the “on” position. Most people fail to push the breaker firmly past the off position and assume it is reset.
Most household service work will not require a permit. Larger projects such as room additions and service and panel upgrades will require a permit and subsequent inspections. Failure to follow building codes could require your work to be completely redone at additional expense.
