Lights in bathrooms on both floors went out


WHAT WOULD MAKE THE LIGHTS IN ALL 3 BATHROOMS GO OUT? THE ELECTRIC OUTLETS STILL WORK AND i HAVE CHECKED THE SWITCH ON THE MAIN POWER BOX.

Is there a breaker labeled specifically bath lights?

If so, turn it to the off position, then turn it back on.

Could be that the three are all operating off the same gfci breaker--look for a breaker with a switch handle AND a push button---

Could also be back wired to a gfci outlet somewhere--even outside the house---

It was done like that for the early part of the 80's.

My question is, why the lights were on a GFI? Usually its just the outlets.
