Power outage help!

My electricity went off, came back on, and now my hospital tank equipment quit working. The outlet is working, and I have tried using extension cord to other outlets. No dice. I am moving the sick fish back to main tank! This sucks. Any body know if you can reboot equipment or something, I think this may have happened once before and it just stared working again. I'm frustrated!

With it plugged in. stick a small screwdriver or chop stick into the impeller while its running. See if you bump it a few times if it starts up.

Have you tried replacing the fuse in the plug? Maybe the power surge blew the fuse

Not yet. But nothing happens when I plug it in. I'm just leaving it unplugged for now. How long does it take for bb in hob to go south?

Bingo! Thanks.
So should I go ahead and move the sick fish back or just wait until tomorrow?
