I plugged a fan into an outlet and the power in half my apartment blew with no tripped breakers and will not come back on. Can it be a breaker or outlet?

Unplug the fan and do not plug it in again without having it checked.

The receptacle may be AFCI or GFCI protected by another receptacle. Make sure none of your receptacles are of this type and tripped. If tripped, you can reset them at the receptacle.


If none of your breakers are tripped and you live in an apartment, it could be that this receptacle is on your neighbor's panel and they have a tripped breaker.
