GFI outlets and power ?
New here and have an Electrical problem in one of my apartments. I'll try my best to break it down for ya.
2 outlets above the sink counter. One has a GFI. Microwave was plugged into the non-GFi outlet and quit working. Plugged Micro in another outlet and worked fine. The little light on the GFI is not green or yellow or anything. I pulled both outlets out and checked the outlets with a tester and there is no power to either outlets. I put the testers on the wires directly and nothing. I checked the breaker to the outlets and I have power to the main breaker, it's not tripping the main breaker, and if I push to reset the GFI still nothing. I'm kind of confused on this any suggestions? Is the GFI bad and cutting the current. If I change out the GFI will it fix it? I still figure that I should still have power to the wires regardless even if the GFI is bad... hmmm
