  • How old is your home? Check for a GFCI in your garage. What were the circumstances of the outage? – isherwood Feb 11 at 20:23
  • Are you familiar with a circuit breaker panel? Called a "service panel", "breaker box", "load center", etc.? Often found in utility spaces in your home. – Harper Feb 11 at 20:54
  • Lighting circuits and heating (ie plug sockets) should be on different breakers/circuits. – Criggie Feb 11 at 23:07
  • Hello, and welcome to Home Improvement. It's hard to understand your run-on sentence; would you edit in some periods, and some more information? – Daniel Griscom Feb 12 at 0:16
  • @criggie, that's not true a single bathroom can have everything on 1 circuit. But the op did say the lights were working. since the home is not wired to code of even 30 years ago based on only 1 GFCI in the home I would be looking for a tripped breaker. – Ed Beal Feb 12 at 0:30

Check for tripped breakers in panel and all outside receptacles for tripped GFI's.
