Troubleshooting Tips

If your electrical outlet is not powering up your electronics or appliances, then keep calm and continue reading. There might be nothing wrong with the electrical outlet itself. Let’s run a few tests.

First, make sure the area is free of moisture and wetness. We all know electricity and water make for a deadly combination. If the area is safe and the outlets are not smoking or burned, then we can investigate.

Start by making sure it’s not the appliance or device that is faulty. Bring a phone charger or lamp and plug it into the outlet. If these don’t work either, then unplug them and continue reading.

Next, if it is a GFCI outlet, then there should be a "RESET" button on the outlet. This button protrudes when the GFCI outlet "trips," or turns off. Push the button back in to reset the outlet. Try your device again.

If this does not work, then look for switches that might control the outlet. These are generally beside the lighting switch. Flip the switch and plug in your device to see if the outlet works now. No? Continue reading.

Now, let’s check the circuit breaker. If you have overloaded the circuit with too many devices and appliances, then the circuit breaker may have tripped OFF. Open the circuit breaker panel’s door and flip any switches that are in the OFF position. If this does not work, then let’s try one last thing.

We’re going to tighten the electrical connections. Turn off the electricity to the room and unscrew the outlet from the junction box. Lightly tug on the connections. If they come loose, then you’ve found your problem. If the connections are tight and the outlet is still not working, then you have a deeper problem at hand.
