I recently turned off a circuit in order to install a light fixture. When I flipped it back on, everything came back except for two GFCI outlets on my kitchen counter wall. I tried pushing the buttons on them, but neither respond. I tried going back, turning the circuit off, then back on - nothing. Any suggestions?
You might have shorted the circuit when you put in the light fixture so the GFI is doing its job and indicating a fault. Disconnect the fixture and see if that resolves the problem.
Also, if it is an old GFI, it could need replacing.
Right you were - thanks for the save!
If this is a florescent fixture, you probably need to put it on another circuit. Florescents and GFI's don't play well.
What if you replaced the GFCI and it shows a green power light but it will not allow you to reset? What does that mean?
