Hi There!

Thanks for Choosing Just Answer.

First thing make sure you have no GFCI'S tripped in the unit. The Ground Fault Circuit Indicators are normally installed in the bathroom area but could be located in the kitchen. There should be a Test button and a Reset button located on this GFCI outlet. This would cut off the power to your outlets if it has tripped. Also check the breakers in the breaker panel make sure none have tripped. Sounds like a GFCI or breaker is tripped if you other 120 volt appliances are working.

Thank You! Please hit ACCEPT for my efforts, Positive feedback and BONUS welcomed!!!

OK

A couple questions.. Are you plugged into shore power? Do you have a generator? and do you have a converter or inverter?

Thanks.
