    Default Kitchen Outlets Not Working, GFI?

    Hello all out there, the four outlets in my kitchen stopped working about a week ago, they worked intermittently for a week and now all donít work. It appears to be on the same circuit as the stove burner igniters (they donít make their clicking noise, gas still works). 20 AMP GFI outlet, I attempted to swap this out with a new one, still not working. Neighboring switch is sink undercabinet light and bottom switch is disposal (both work). The new GFI has green light in bottom right that is on, so it has power.

    The light and disposal should be on a different circuit.
    The intermittent aspects indicates a loose connection somewhere. If there are other receptacles on the same circuit still working then the problem could be in one of them. If you can trace the route of the power cables the problem is in the last working device or the first dead device.

    Please post a pic of the disposal switch so we can see what is on each screw terminal.

    When it is not working can you reset the GFI if you push the test button.. Newer GFI's will not reset if they are not wired correctly. If it resets, then the problem is downstream. Go to the next outlet and inspect there. Check that the wires to the outlets are attached to screws and not stuck into the back of the outlet.
