New to the forum, so I apologize to any ignorance with where/how/what to post.
I recently plugged the vacuum into the kitchen GFCI receptacle, and it suddeny stopped working. Wasn’t able to press in the test or reset button at all. The outlet next to it is dead as well. I’ve flipped all the breakers to the off position, then back to the on position. No luck. I’ve replaced the GFCI with a new 20a GFCI from lowes, made sure the wiring was correct. Multiple lamps I’m using to test the power in the receptacle aren’t working. There’s an orange light on the receptacle that is lit, yet no power, and I’m not able to press the test or reset button to trip it. I’ve switched the wiring around on the load/line and the orange light doesn’t light up when I flip the breaker back on, so I switched them back to the previous way, once again, orange light comes back on. I’ve searched for other GFCI receptacles throughout the single wide, and happened to notice the one in the bathroom that works, but I’m not able to press in the test or reset button on it either. Even using some force with a plastic piece to apply direct pressure on the test and reset button, they still won’t click. What on earth is going on here? Every other outlet in the single wide works fine. Appliances in kitchen work fine.
My questions are:
in the kitchen, would it be possible that the breaker is bad instead of the GFCI? The breaker in the panel looks to be 4 breakers made together (unless they’re all singles and just appear to be 1 breaker fuse). From top to bottom: 20, 30, 30, 20. Kitchen is on the 20 on top and 20 on the bottom.
why wouldn’t I be able to press the test or reset button in on a working GFCI outlet in the bathroom?
I appreciate the knowledge of you all and the helpful insight you’re willing to give.
