GFCI receptacles

Both GFCI receptacles stopped working in the bathroom. I checked the junction box and none of the switches were tripped, even the one labeled bathroom GFCI. What are other problems that can cause this to happen? thanks for the help, D

It is not a good idea to have a GFI feed another GFI device. I don't know why anyone would wire them this way, nor can I think how one didn't trip before the other one.

I would check to see if you have a third GFI somewhere that feeds the two you know are out.

I woould also have you check the breaker panel one more time. Some breakers do not look tripped even when the are. Run you hand down the row of breakers and feel for the difference.
