Electrical Wiring in the Home/cgfi


I have a cgfi in one bathroom and my other bathroom is on the same cgfi. the bathroom with the cgfi is set and the outlet works but the other bathroom's outlet doesn't work. I replaced the other bathrooms receptacal and still nothing. what do I do next?

It has to be between the two outlets. And it could make a stop at an outside outlet, garage outlet, or basement outlet.  Outside outlets tend to be the biggest problem because they get wet. So, check for other outlets that are not working.  Make sure that all of the wires are tight. If an outside outlet is corroded, you may need to replace it.
