Outlet worked fine for years. It stopped working...changed with new one (wired just as the other was, Black to gold, White to silver, Ground to green). Nothing. Nothing Hot to Neutral, nothing (2v) Hot to Ground, 122v Neutral to Ground (both in outlet and wires without. This is on same leg as three other lights, all of which still work, breaker not tripped. Help
I have seen this hundreds of times. The problem is almost always in the first non-working outlet or the last working one! The very few that this has not been the case it has been in a junction box or breaker panel very rare!
Go to the last working outlet--it may be a bad back stab feeding to the next outlet (quite common) or a broken wire usually because of a nick where the wire was stripped. Again, rare, but a possibility.
