I am not electrician. I am a DIYer and have some experience with replacing breakers, doing basic electrical work, but nothing really "advanced".
An outlet was recently cracked, and my roommate went to replace it while I wasn't home. I am told he didn't turn off the breaker, but when I came home nothing on that circuit was working. I had assumed the breaker was broken from not turning it off, so I replaced it with a new one. Still not working. I checked to make sure the new outlet was wired correctly, and it was.
It's the second outlet in the circuit, I think. It is second closest to the breaker box, so I assume it is second in the circuit.
Anyway, does anyone think I should get an electrician, or can I at least rule out some other causes, or fix this myself?
