My outdoor plugs circuit is out (xmas lights) and usually it would be
a ground fault interrupter. We are new to this house (2 year old
house) and it is the first house I have been in that does not seem to
have a GFI reset in the breaker box. Neither can I find any on the
affected plugs. Is there something I am missing? Are they hidden
somewhere weird sometimes?
I'd check for any tripped GFI outlets inside your house. My last house had
the exterior outlets connected to a GFI outlet in the dining room. Or if you
live in an area of tract homes, ask a neighbor who lives in the same model
house. Good luck!
My master GFI is in the upstairs master bathroom and one of the load side
outlets is out on the back patio. The other night, my daughter is blow

thought that was strange since just the normal lights were on upstairs.
When I went outside to the panel, I noticed the upstairs Christmas outdoor
lights were also out. Remembering that those lights were connected to the
patio outlet, I unplugged them until she was finished, then reconnected
