Electrical outlets located in areas that might be exposed to water, including bathrooms, kitchens, bars and exterior outlets, are required by code to be tied to a ground fault circuit interruptor (GFCI) breaker or outlet. GFCI outlets can be identified by their “test” and “reset” buttons. If your outlets are not working, chances are they are tied to a GFCI outlet that has tripped. Once you find the GFCI, press the “reset” button to restore power. If you cannot reset the outlet then you will need to contact an electrician to have it replaced.
