GFI= Ground Fault Interrupt
Two KITCHEN outlets (one GFI the other non-GFI) are on the same circuit (I believe). The non GFI circuit stopped working and I noticed the GFI unit will not reset and automatically pop. The disposal in the sink stopped working and is leaking water. If the water leak is causing a short,
shouldn't a circuit breaker trip?
can the GFI circuit somehow shutdown other outlet nodes on the same circuit?
From a troubleshooting standpoint, wouldn't electrically disconnecting the disposal be the first step and try to reset the GFI and test both outlets?
UPDATE: The electrical leads to the disposal were disconnected and the GFI was reset. Outlet tests (with a light bulb) indicate power restored to affected outlets. I appreciate every good response below and would upvote them if I had the privilege (not enough points today).
I believe that when the breaker is tripped, it will show bright orange (not the case in this photo):
