Outdoor Outlet

Outlet was working yesterday, then it got wet, made the clicking noise. I unplugged the radon machine, let the outlet dry out, but itís still not working. this has happened before & has started working again, but not this time. The other bathroom GFI on the same circuit breaker still works. We replaced the outlet with a previously, albeit very old, outlet we had saved & still nothing? Any ideas how to remedy this or what it could be? My husband can replace an outlet again if need be. TIA!

99% of the time when an outdoor receptacle does not work, it's a tripped GFCI. Finding that GFCI however....
