Electrical Outlets Not Working in One Room

All of the electrical outlets in one room stopped working at the same time. They are standard outlets so there is no reset button on them. The breaker is not tripped so what else could be the problem? Someone mentioned a possible blown fuse so how would you look for that to change it?

Hi Elisha, Since you have breakers, you won't have fuses. You need to go to the breaker box, switch the breaker for that room off and then turn it back on. You should hear and feel a distinct click when it turns back on. If that doesn't work then, most likely, you have a bad breaker and you need an electrician to handle that. Good Luck.

I agree with the previous posters. If you have tried flipping the breakers on and off -- and sometimes they do not look like they have flipped off -- and that doesn't work, you need to call an electrician. If you have breakers, you will not have fuses. Any "loose wires" or anything like could cause fires or other problems.

My next guess would be a broken wire.
