As the title states, the main floor bathroom and the adjacent breakfast room outlets are not working. The overhead chandelier in the breakfast room, however, works fine, as do the kitchen outlets.
I have checked all of the GFCI outlets and tested/reset them including the two in the kitchen and the ones upstairs. The only one that doesn't reset or respond to test is the one in the breakfast room.
Strange thing is that the morning before the problems the outlets and everything worked fine before I left for work. I know this because the TV and the bathroom lights worked. The only thing that I know my wife does is unplug the surge protector from the outlet (TV connected to this one), which she does quite frequently so the kids don't have the TV on all the time. My suspicion is all the jiggling from inserting and removing the thick plug from the outlet loosened one of the wires.
I opened said outlet yesterday but did not really know what to look for. I received a slight shock when trying to see what was wrong with it so I ended up putting it back. I'm fairly certain there are safer ways of checking the problem and I'm not doing those
