I recently moved into a new-to-me house that has a simple outdoor light system setup in the backyard. It's a low-level current outdoor light set connected to a outdoor lights timer/transformer that is then plugged into a wall outlet attached directly to the house. This outlet has some protection from being on the wall of the house (gutters) but is not waterproof, it has the protective flaps.
I made the mistake of leaving the outdoor lights plugged in during a recent rainstorm and now the outlet is not working.
The rain stopped yesterday and I blew out the outlet with a can of compressed air. Perhaps it's still not dry but other things I've done: identified the breaker for the outlet on the box and reset it, found as many GCFI switches on other outlets (this outlet does not have a reset switch) and reset them.
If waiting for the outlet to dry does not resolve the issue and I cannot find any other GCFI switches, is it possible that the outlet itself is bad now?
