I have part of my living room, foyer and front porch lights

Customer Question

JA: Hello. What seems to be the problem?
Customer: i have part of my living room, foyer and front porch lights not working. I was running a sweeper to that outlet and it must have blown a circuit, but breakers are off. I also checked out the GFI breakers in both bathrooms and reset them. Still nothing.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?
Customer: The lights went out this summer, but came back on - same area. Nothing since then until yesterday.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: If I can. It maybe beyond me....
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Older house but new circuits were done in 93. Not much of a map for circuits.
