wall switch for garbage disposal

I recently changed the wall switch for the garbage disposal simply to change the color. Hooked everything up exactly the same (2 wire switch) but now there is no power to the disposal. I tried the reset button - nothing happened. Checked for loose connection but everything looks good. Is there another switch I'm missing?

Did you turn the breaker back on?

Did you get the right connections on the switch? There should be two screw terminals (usually gold, silver or black colored) for the power wires and one green one for the ground.

Did you check the wire nut connection on the neutral wires in the back of the box (if there is one).

Is the disposal hard wired, or does it plug in to a receptacle under the sink?

Do you have any test equipment?
