Replaced switches in kitchen, disposal and sink light not working

CEakerMay 24, 2013

I replaced all the plugs and switches in my kitchen from almond color to white. I have a double switch next to my sink, the kind where there are two horizontal switches. The top one controlled the disposal, and the bottom controlled the light over the sink. When I replaced that piece and tested it, they both worked fine. Then, after I was done with all the rest of them, they do not work anymore. I rewired the old switch in there to see if it was the new switch that was bad, but still not power to either. I am out of ideas. Any ideas from seasoned electrical folks? Thanks!

How many circuits do you have in the kitchen? Are all the circuit breakers in the operating position? Which outlets work and which do not?

Is there anything else that is not working?
Have you ensured all of your connections are secure?
Can you determine which device on the circuit is immediately 'upstream'? That's a good place to start.
You could also look for a GFCI receptacle that needs to be reset.
