I am hoping for some help here because this problem is driving me nuts. A few days ago our outdoor outlets stopping working (we had Xmas lights plugged in). There is also an outlet in our basement and one in the garage also not working. I am assuming these are all GFCI protected and on the same circuit. I cannot for the life of me figure out the problem. I have reset/checked every GFCI outlet in the house and none of the circuit breakers on the main panel are tripped.
I also took off the outlet plates and checked the wires in each dead outlet with a non-contact test and neither set of wires is hot. This would indicate the problem is not with the individual outlet correct?
I also checked the line and load sides of the GFCI plugs inside the house and both appear to be functional.
