Electrical Troubleshooting Question:
My homes smoke detectors, one(1)upstairs bedroom and hall lights all run on the same circuit.
I have checked all wiring for each smoke detector and replaced each receptacle in the bedroom which has no electricity with new ones.
I have replaced each battery in the smoke detectors with new ones.
The left side of the room has no electricity, but the right side operators properly.
What is my next troubleshooting step? I don't understand why I still do not have power?.
Thanks Denise

Hi Denise - Great Electrical Repair Question!
I would identify the circuit in this area and make sure it is OFF. Open all the receptacle, switch an fixture boxes one at a time.

What you are looking for is a loose connection on a wire junction or splice. All of the connections and splices need to be carefully inspected, making sure that they are all spliced together to ensure the bond between them leading to all the devices.

Ceiling fixtures which have incandescent light bulbs can create heat which makes the wire connections above the fixture brittle and become burnt and eventually loose connections.

If any of these conditions are found they need to be repaired with electrical tape and good wire connectors.
