Troubleshooting Guide

OUTLETThese are just a few easy steps to try before you call Squires Electric. Hopefully these can save you the cost of a service call.

First where is the problem located? Is it in a bathroom, kitchen, garage, or anywhere outside that might be protected by a G.F.C.I. (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter)?  If so first locate your GFCI’s and look to see if one of them may have “tripped”. A tripped GFCI is pictured here.

The buttons may be different colors than this but, if the top one is sticking out the GFCI is tripped. To reset it just push the button back in. Now if the button won’t go back in, it is time to go to the panel and check your breakers.
