GFCI stands for ground fault circuit interrupter. Also known as GFI, these devices detect variances in the electrical current. When a variance is detected in the electrical current, they will automatically shut off power to the protected part of the circuit.
Generally GFCI outlets are required in areas where moisture or dampness can be. General places include bathroom plugs, kitchen countertops, outside plugs, pool pumps, jacuzzis, and other wet and damp locations.
If you have a plug or a device that does not work in one of these locations, the GFCI might be tripped. First, ensure that the situation that caused the tripping is resolved such as ensuring items are dry. Then reset the plug or breaker. The plugs have a test and a reset button. Press the reset button.
