Outlets not working


I recently moved into a home (built 1981) and noticed the outlet in the master bath doesn't work. When I went to the spare bath, the same problem existed. I also noticed some of the outlets outside or in the garage don't work. Yesterday, when I was putting up a ceiling fan I noticed that the bathrooms and garage are under one breaker in the panel.

Is it possible the breaker is at fault and is there anything I can try on my own before I call an electrician?

The scenario you have described should include a GFCI somewhere, either a circuit breaker or receptacal. Look for a tripped GFCI somewhere.

Thanks, you're exactly right. I did a google search and ended up looking in the garage and found the GFCI. I was surprised to not see them in the bathrooms. Hooray, I can cut my hair without an extension cord!
