5634 Leviton decora -two switch unit

Visibility: Open to anyone

I am installing this new switch to replace one that broke (toggle)..  Does the red wire connect to the top or bottom black screw on the left hand side of the switch?  The other wire is black.

    WIthout knowing which wire is hot (120V) and which are the switch legs, it is unsafe to provide specific wiring instructions based solely on the wires' colors.  I would recommend using an electronic tester/voltmeter to determine which is the hot wire.  The hot would wire up to one of the common terminals (assuming there's only one hot in the box), and then the switch legs coming down from the loads would wire up to the A1/B1 terminals.
