Electrical Outlets with Very Low Power
There may be a loose connection somewhere. Generally outlets (receptacles) along the wall are daisy chained. A loose connection would therefore affect receptacles, lights, etc. further on down the line. The loose connection could be at a good receptacle that you did not replace yet.
Most homes built between 1970 and 2011 have wiring where the wire end is pushed into the back of a receptacle unit or switch unit and just sticks there. These connections are not all that reliable and vibration such as from trucks on the street outside can cause a connection to become loose. Also oxidation from moisture over the years can cause problems. Screwing the wire onto the switch or receptacle is much better; screws are always provided.
The disadvantages of crab apple trees. In summer, the apples are too sour to pick and eat. In winter the birds come and leave dropping all over the place.
