My guess is that you hooked the line wires to the load screws. Different brands have different configurations. You need to read the labels ON THAT OUTLET.


Correct.

Should have terminals label marked LINE and LOAD.

LINE is incoming power from breaker box.

LOAD is outgoing power from the GFCI to outlets protected by the GFCI (downstream outlets).

Make sure you have correctly identified the terminals, GFCIs with screw terminals the brass colored screws are your HOT (Black wires).

Silver screws are your Neutral (White wires).

Important! Do not mix LINE OR LOAD HOT or Neutral connections.

And as someone else mentioned, GFCIs are typically shipped in tripped mode. You will have to press the reset button in order to get power to the outlet and downstream protected outlets.
