Electrical Question from Shannon about Outlet Wiring


Question: We have 2 floors in our house. Everything on the main floor is working fine. Upstairs, only the light switches will work. None of the outlets are working. We tried re-starting all the breakers for the house with no luck.

Electrical Question from Shannon about Outlet Wiring

Received from Shannon a Homeowner in Cincinnati, Ohio

Question: We have 2 floors in our house. Everything on the main floor is working fine. Upstairs, only the light switches will work. None of the outlets are working. We tried re-starting all the breakers for the house with no luck. Is there something else we can try or a simple solution. Is just seems odd how it’s only the outlets.
