None of my wall switches work today. Worked when I went to bed. Have never had problems before.


When I went to bed all the switches worked. The outside light, the hallway, the bathroom, all of them. I wake up to turn on outside light and NONE of them work. I went to the circuit breaker, nothing tripped. All the electrical outlets work. Any ideas before I call an electrician.

Look for a GFI that's tripped.
