I have a power outlet in my kitchen that has been impossible for me to figure out what is wrong.
Problem: The outlet works for seemingly random amount of time, then stops working for a random amount of time.
Background: My kitchen was remolded a few years ago, and all electrical was replaced. The outlet in question was added to power an under cabinet appliance. This outlet worked without a problem for at least a year. Then, without a known cause, it started intermittently stopped working. The breaker never trips, the outlet stops working for a while, then starts working again for awhile.
Tried so far:
- Replaced outlet
- Replaced circuit breaker
- Had electrician visit (outlet was working during the visit, never stopped working)
- Turned off the breaker to see if any other outlet is on the same circuit, none found.
- Plugged in night light to watch if there is a pattern to when the outlet works or stops working (none found yet)
Does anyone have any ideas on how I can continue to diagnose the problem?
Thanks in advance.
