  • If by the resets you mean you have ground trips on the outlets themselves I would first suspect the outlet is bad - you can remove the cover and test the wires. If no juice there the breakers may be bad - but as a general rule if so you will not be able to reset or they will not snap over the entire way. The very first thing though is to make sure whatever you are using to test it works in a different outlet. +5
  • Have you tried turning off the breaker and turning it back on? If so, then it could be that the breaker serving those circuits has gone bad.
  • one of the rooms should have a GFCI outlet, look for a reset button on it - sometimes it will be in a kitchen or laundry room as well
  • 5-24-2017 That is a case where you just have to look and see what the problem is. For example, if your house is 40 to 50 years old, it might have been wired with aluminum wires. That is ok until it's not ok any more and then you have to pull the aluminum out and replace it with copper. You can only tell by looking. I suggest you hire a qualified electrician. What ever he charges is cheaper than a fire.
  • Sometimes a breaker is "weak" and appears to be on, but needs to be pushed to off and back on again.
  • First of all make sure your device is working from another Outlet also if the lights are working in the room then it's most likely the outlet itself.
  • There may be a loose wire nut on the hot source/feed wire that powers both of them. Otherwise check for a GFI before these two outlets as Nada mentioned.
