I just moved into a used home and replacing outlets (prior family loved pulling by the cord). In the master bedroom bath, I removed the old outlet and installed the new one. Did not short or ground fault the wires. I now have poor continuity, without breaker tripping. I noticed that the garage has no power now, and earlier I had a temporary loss of power in the garage that corrected itself.
I have checked the connections in the outlet box and switches but not light yet. They are all good. When I plug my continuity tester into the outlet it beeps. I had isolated the garage to this plug by removing the line out and lost the poor continuity signal in the garage without lighting any voltage or amp lights.
I had not yet checked the GFI in the main bath on the other side of the wall yet Just realized that is a possibility. I did not think that many rooms would be linked together for outlets in Utah. This would explain though why the outlet in the Master bed bath is not a GFI.
I am not able to return for a day or so and was wondering if someone had other ideas I could try upon my return in case it is not the GFI.
