Hi- A bunch of outlets in my kitchen stopped working so I assumed that I blew a fuse. I flipped the fuses in the circuit breaker, but the outlets are still not working. Any ideas about what else might be wrong? Is it something that I could fix or do I need to call an electrician? Thanks!

To reset a circuit beaker turn it all the way off then back on.

A blown fuse is replaced with one identical. Unscrew the bad one and screw in a new one.

Do you have breakers or fuses?

Either way, go back and check and follow the above.

IF you have fuses it may be possible that you replaced a bad fuse with another bad fuse.

Since this is a kitchen, the outlets may be (and should be) GFCI protected. Check to see if there is a GFCI outlet with the reset button popped out, and push it in to reset it.
