Unplug the item (if plugged in) from the receptacle. Plug in an item in the same receptacle that you know is in working condition. If your item is not working and you have tried to reset the breaker, you can install an extension cord from a working receptacle to restore power until a licensed electrical contractor can arrive. When you use an extension cord, you should always use a high-grade cord, either a 15-amp or 20-amp-rated cord. Most cords will give you this information on the sides. It is always nice to have one on hand for this emergency. If your item does not operate once you have restored power, you will need to call the appropriate repair company.
