Could use some help on this one—I've wired plenty of outlets and switches, dimmers, 3 way, etc. but this one stumped me.
I need to replace the old switch on my garbage disposal, and I assumed I'd be able to use a standard 15amp switch. When I opened it up, I saw the existing switch had 2 red wires going to 2 terminals, but a third black wire that seems to be hardwired into the switch.
My new switch has 2 terminals plus a ground. How would I wire it? Do I need a special type of switch? Can I just cut and cap the black wire?
It's in the same junction box as a GFCI outlet, not sure that matters.
