GFI problem

Hello - Thanks in advance for any help.

Last night - I went to the fridge in my garage to find that it was not working. Checked the outlet - there was no power. Knowing that it might be on a loop that includes the bathrooms and/or outlets outside - I checked my bathrooms/and a few outlets outside and the they were dead as well.

Some have the test/reset buttons on the outlet - some do not. Here is the list of outlets that are dead and which ones have the reset/test buttons.

Master Bath - no power - buttons
2nd bath - no power - no buttons
1st floor bath - no power - buttons
Front outdoor outlet - no power - no buttons
Back outdoor outlet - no power - buttons

The issue I'm having is - I can't seem to reset the ones with buttons - I checked the circuit breaker panel in the basement and everything looks fine there. We did lose power over the weekend - not sure if that could have done anything.

Anyway, does anyone know what my next step should be?

Thanks Again!

You have a fault that is preventing the GFCI from resetting. Unplug everything from the receptacles and try again. If that doesn't work t hen investigate all the outdoor receptacles that possibly could have water or insects in them.

Thanks - I just bought some new GFCI oulets - I'll replace the outdoor one first and see if that solves the problem.
