I have an outdoor GFCI outlet right by the patio door wall that connects downstream to a regular outlet in the Gazebo. Many times after heavy rain the Gazebo outlet would not work cause the GFCI outlet would trip. So I would reset it. Happened probably 5 or 6 times over a year. Lat year after being tripped again the GFCI outlet won't reset anymore, tried numerous times and tries again yesterday. I figured it needs to be replaced but I can't find a circuit breaker int he house that the GFCI outlet is connected to and so I can't turn off the electricity to it to change it. I have used a current detector and it indicated current is running to the GFCI but as expected no current in the Gazebo outlet. Any advised or help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Sounds like the Gfi needs replacing.

Hire an electrician to replace it. They have the tools to identify unlabeled circuit breakers
