Kitchen Disposal Switch Wiring

How to Electrical Wiring for a Kitchen Disposal Switch

How to Wire a Kitchen Disposal Switch

 Electrical Repairs Question I have an over-sink light and disposal on two switches in same box. When I opened the switch box the light switch had a wire around the connector at the top, a wire poked into back hole on bottom, and the bottom connector was removed. The disposal switch had a wire around top and bottom connector and a wire poked into back hole on the top. In the box there are 4 black wires and one piece of wire stripped on both ends which I assume the switches shared. Help! I forgot where this piece goes. I took pictures but they don’t show this piece!

This electrical question came from: Mickie, a Homeowner from Charlottesville, Virginia.

Additional Comments: I love the site; it tells me much more than my DIY Books; I especially like the video.
