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!

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
