I have a 15/20 Amp receptable that has 2 white wires 2 black wires 1 Ground and 1 Red Wire. The switch that is suposed to energize this receptable has a 1 Red wire and 1 white wire. The switch dosen't seem to be operating receptable In the receptablwe I have the blacks tied together and plugged into the back of the plug also I have the red wire plugged into the same side as the black wires (Brass). On the silver side I have 2 white wires and a grnd wire on the green screw nut. This switch previously worked before I changed for a new style plug and lighted switch. Got to be something simple I just can't figure out. Help gladly accepted and appreciated.
Remove the tab only on the brass side? Leave the silver side alone? On the single pole switch the top wire is the Red and the 2nd one is Black. The ground is tied together in the box and not atavhed to the switch ground screw.
