Are there two sets of Romex wires that feed the outlet?
If there is one set of power feed wire, maybe you ought not have "clipped
the joiner part".

Garbage disposer failed and original diagnosis (mine) revealed no power to
the top-half of outlet that both the GD and dishwasher plug into; the
dishwasher worked fine. So, I replaced the outlet, clipping the joiner-part
of the outlet, and still no power to the top-half of the outlet, so I
reversed the plugs and the dishwasher was still active, so that ruled out
the outlet as the problem. I tried the reset button on the disposal several
times in both halves of the outlet and neither worked, so I concluded the
problem was the garbage disposer itself, so replaced it. Now, it works,
continuously; but the switch does not. So, I presume this means I need to
also replace the switch, but is there anything else I should be
considering/looking at before proceeding to this step?
Thanks for any suggestions/comments youd care to make.
