Hi, I'm Mike G and I'll be assisting you. Do you have a 2 wire voltage tester? You'll need to test the dead outlet to determine what the problem is. Let me know and we can continue.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No I don't have that. Thanks anyway.
Expert:  Mike G. replied 1 year ago.

Very well. Should you wish to continue, testers are available at any home center for around $20.00. I suggest a Volt/Con type for easy use. When troubleshooting a problem, you need to test not guess.
