If I could afford an electrician I wouldn't be asking this question. My bedroom has four outlets - 2 of them actually function, the other two do not. I did not know this when I purchased the house and seriously doubt it would have made a difference because of "circumstances". I "assumed" that the problem was a bad connection from one outlet to the other - not so, I've checked them and they seem to be wired correctly. Can anyone give me another clue as to a next step? One wall has two outlets and they both work - the west wall has one outlet that does not work - the north wall's outlet is also kaput.
