Ok, thanks.They have 2 different styles, one that the light is on when the receptacle is working and one that comes on when it is tripped.So, is there power when you plug something in?

yes
Expert:  AssuredElectrical replied 2 years ago.
Ok,If you have power on the receptacle then all is well.When it goes off, then you know it is tripped.Push the TEST button, the light should go off or might change colorsThen push the RESET and it should be good again.Try that and that runs the tests on the receptacle
