How can I fix spotlights not working?

A light switch in the kitchen was accidentally damaged. Long story but the light switch was damaged by a heavy hit from a ladder.... I have tried another light switch but the light doesn't work now. There are three red wires and three black wires as well as green and yellow wires. On the new switch there are two terminals, one at the top and one at the bottom. I have inserted two red wires in the bottom terminal and one in the top. Does it matter which wires you insert in the bottom and top terminals? Why doesn't it work? What else could it be?
