- Most electrical outages are caused by a blown fuse, circuit breaker or outlet fuse. If power is out to a limited area, please check other nearby outlets to determine the extent of the outage before calling to report an issue. Some outlets in kitchens and bathrooms have reset buttons. Locate the circuit breaker box within your unit. Blown fuse switches will not line up with the other fuses in the box and may have an orange “blown” indicator. You can safely move the fuse to the left and right to reset it. If you are unsuccessful in resetting a blown fuse, please take no further action and report your outage to the maintenance hotline.
- If the problem is building-wide, then it is likely a matter for the power company and out of our control. We encourage you to contact Seattle City Light to report an outage.
