The Electrical Outlet That Has Two buttons
It happened once or twice before that the electricity was cut off by itself on the outlet. I had to push either one or both of the buttons (Reset on top & Test on bottom). Then, the electricity came back.
Because of tiling, I took the outlet plate cover off. I did not touch anything in the outlet. Once I put the plate cover back on, the outlet literally stopped working. I kept pushing the buttons, sometimes just the Reset button, sometimes just the Test button, sometimes both of them. However, the electricity never came back. The breaker is never off, so I am not sure why the outlet is not working anymore. Is there a trick to push the buttons? I checked a self-repairing book, but it only tells me that this type of outlet works in a circle. Once it's interrupted, the electricity is cut off automatically, because it acts as a ground device. That's all the answer I got. The book does not tell me HOW to fix the problem.
HOW do I fix the problem and not interrupt the circuit? thanks
