How to Wire a Kitchen Disposal Switch
[ad#block] 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!
