many breaker are tripped but do not look like it----turn off each breaker fully ---then turn it back on---I bet you find one that is tripped .

Could be an Arc Fault breaker, a GFI, bad outlet, back stabed outlet. No way to know without testing and looking.

The heavy load may have caused a connection to fail.
Answers based on the National Electrical Code. Local amendments may apply. Check with your local building officials.
