Customer Question

Hi I have a wall outlet that stopped working. What is the best way to approach this. I have multimeter and pretty good with tools. The rest of wall outlets work fine by the way

Hi Peeps, welcome back. First, I would check the outlet that stopped working for loose connections. If you come up empty, check the outlet to the left or right of, or po5, the one in an adjacent room back to back with this outlet. Should be a loose connection especially if outletsare back-wired. Let me know what you find. Thank you
