The reset button in in the middle between the two plug sockets. One for test and one for reset. Push that in to reset it. If it won't then the breaker for that circuit may be tripped in the main load center OR what ever tripped it is still got it shorted out with some feedback. Hope that helps. Please get back to me if you need more as all follow ups are included in our fee.
