GFI?

I have two outlets that are labeled GFI. I don't see switches on either. Are the test and reset buttons somewhere else? They are not in the breaker box.

TIA

They are in a series. There is another one connected in the chain that has the reset.

They often wire in one GFCI receptcal and run multiple outlets from it.

Look in the bathroom for the one with the test button.

Master is in the bathroom. Test and reset buttons on it. It may control 4-5 other outlets. GFI controls all outlets within 6' of a water supply. Also outside outlets and any outlet with ground level access such as inside a storage compartment.
