That is strange. Your original post said three outlets total. Which one went out first and did it just stop or was there anything that may have caused it?

Okay, there's a clue in your description.
All outside sockets should be looped to a GFCI, and any interior sockets that are near water (bathroom, kitchen sink) should be likewise. So if "some" are working and some are not, then I would suspect an "open" circuit as KyDan has described.

also check the breaker panel - I have had a GFI trip and the breaker at the same time.

If that doesnt work you can take a meter and verify voltage at the plug - could have a wire that came loose causing the other outlets to quit working also

Eric, the first one that went out was the one beside the couch.

Is that closest to the converter as far as the ones not working? Or the farthest?

Open all your breakers at the panel and close them again. The handle may look closed but it is actually tripped.....let us know.

I would re-check all the breakers and then pull out the volt ohm meter. Check the outlet, then unscrew it and check the wires themselves. Electrical gremlins are loads of fun.

yes they are - I have found going to the one that works and check it then go to the next closest one usually finds the issue quick

I would start by shutting off all the breakers. Turn them on one by one and find out if the faulty ones are on the same circuit. Then start with the outlet the farthest from the converter and move towards it. They will most likely be piggybacked all the way from the converter. Hopefully it is a bad outlet in the chain and the ones feeding off it are being affected.

Good luck
