When a light goes out or a switch doesn't work, you should first check that the main electrical panel doesn't have any circuit breakers activated. Before changing the bulbs and switches, check if a GFCI outlet (which may be located upstream of the problematic light or plug) has been triggered. Sometimes, all bathrooms or outdoor lights are powered through a single GFCI located in a bathroom or somewhere else, such as in a basement.
Simply press the reset button on the GFCI and you can get back to work. If checking the switch box doesn't work, turn off the master switch and check if the cable is cracked or damaged. If so, that may be the culprit. Most faulty small appliance controls need to be replaced rather than repaired.
