Welcome. My name is Tommy and would be glad to assist.

Do any of the brown wires have any tape on them or other identifying marks that make them diffeent than the others?

Is there 2 conduits that wires are installed in? can you see if the wires come out the conduits to determine which wires are in each one?

No nothing no tape or marks I'm assuming issue is with dining room switch as kitchen just has the two brown wires ? The conduits give me no clue!

One thing trying to see, is how the wires were identified as kitchen and dining room, in order to install them on the appropriate switches?
