I have an outdoor receptacle that isn't working. I've checked for a tripped breaker, I've tried replacing the receptacle, and I've confirmed that the breaker is getting power. Using a multimeter I've confirmed that the receptacle is not getting power. Any ideas what could be wrong?

  • There could be a GFCI receptacle feeding that one that is tripped. Look around to see if you can find it. – ArchonOSX Oct 15 '17 at 16:28

    What other receptacles are on the circuit? – ThreePhaseEel Oct 15 '17 at 17:11
  • OK - all of the indoor receptacles are working and there aren't any GFCI receptacles that are tripped. However, I just noticed that none of my outdoor receptacles are working. – Scott Oct 15 '17 at 17:23
  • I take it all your outdoor receptacles are on the same circuit then? – ThreePhaseEel Oct 15 '17 at 18:33
  • That's correct. – Scott Oct 15 '17 at 20:03
