I am installing a new service for a kitchen light, and have made all of the proper connections yielding power, but the switch doesn't work. I do not have the ground hooked to the switch box, would this effect the switch?
The ground not being connected will not affect the operation of the switch. If you hooked it up correctly it would be working so I think you made a mistake. Tell us how you ran the cables and hooked them up. Then we can tell you where you went wrong.
