My outlet in my bathroom is not working.

At Rockhill Electric we get this question a lot.  Here are some things to try before you call an electrician.  If you smell anything burning, see smoke or see arcing from the device not working do not follow our tips and call 911immediately.  Then call us and we will come repair this for you.

  • Check all of the GFCI Outlets in your home.  These are the outlets that have a test and reset button on them.  Sometimes these devices are hidden.  We have found them in other bathrooms, kitchens, basements, garages and even outside.  Often they can even be hidden.
  • Check your breaker or fuse box.  You may have a tripped breaker.  Most breakers lever are in the middle position when tripped.  Arc Fault, GFI and Cutler Hammer Classic breakers may show tripped when they are in the complete off position.
  • Check the outlet by plugging in a known working lamp or other device.  It could be the device that you have plugged in failed.
If these tips have not fixed your issue it is time to call us or visit our website.  (816)322-7625 or
