Arc Fault Breaker

Non of the electrical outlets in the bed room work. The circuit breaker in the electrical box for the bed room has an Arc Fault Breaker. I checked all the electrical outlets for signs of arching and there are no signs of arching. All the outlets looks normal. What should I do next?

Look for a ground wire touching the neutral wire in receptacle boxes and switches.

Did you turn the breaker off thenn back on to reset?

Best to ask questions in the electrical forum instead of the Introduction area
