My bathroom plug does not have power, what's wrong?

Hi, recently, all the plugs in my washrooms went out of power. Do you know where should I check? I looked at the main circuit panel and found the break for the bathroom plugs is at the on position. This is one and half year new home.

Look in one of your other bath or powder rooms for a receptacle with a TEST/RESET button. Push the RESET button and your power should be restored.

If you don't find it in one of your bathrooms, then look in the garage. Many people have a GFCI receptacle in the garage that has been hidden behind stuff for so long that they don't even know it's there. I can't count the number of circumstances where we've told people "look again" about six times before they find it. After you look in the garage. look in the basement. Then look again. Then look again. Then look again. Then look again. Then look again. Then look in the panel for a breaker with a "test" button on it.

Thanks, I found the test button on one of the plug. After I pushed it, every thing is Ok now.
