The same as any other switch. Break the hot wire.

What you did will surely pop a circuit breaker. Leave the wire (neutral) alone. Cut the black wire connect it to one side of the switch and conection the other side of the switch to the other black wire, that you cut.

Like Racraft said, cut the black power wire. Hook one side of the switch to each end of the black wire you just cut. You should end up with black wire-switch-black wire.
