I have this problem too. Years ago a company came out and put 3 outlets in my basement bedroom. They seem to have ran them off an existing outlet ? not sure ? But we also had a hot tub and it has it's own breaker , it still comes on . But last winter the 3 plugs stopped working in my room , I probably had tooo much plugged in to one of them. Since then ,despite breakers being thrown they won't come back on and now the room above m,y bedroom -all of of them. A electrician checked the breakers and said they are all good. I don't see any GFCI plugs anywhere . Any ideas ?? I am a recent widow , have very limited income and cannot afford an expensive v electrician visit.

Welcome to the site and sorry for your lose.
Some breakers appear to be on, but if they have kicked off, you have to turn them to off before turning them on.
If you don't know which one it is you may have to try them all, but it won't be any of the big ones that say 30 or 40.
