Connecting the wiring to a Newlec extractor fan (NL883HS) in the bathroom

Here is the situation:

There's a switch on the wall that turns on the bathroom light, and also turns on the extractor fan (at least it did before the fan broke).

The wiring that comes through the ceiling to connect to the fan consists of two grey wires, each containing one red and one black wire. In one of the grey wires the black wire is cut back, in the other, the red is cut back...

There is also a third wire, a black cable, all on its own.

On the circuit board of the fan there are three places for the wires to connect, labled, 'LS' 'N' and 'L'

My first question is to ask whether someone can tell me which of the wires I have described match which of these letters.

My second question relates to two wiring options which the instructions suggest.

The fan is fitted with a humidistat for automatic control, with the option of manual overide from the fitted pull cord or remote switch.

Option 1 is for wiring the product for manual overide using the internal pull cord.

Option 2 is for wiring with a remote switch.

Does my situation count as having a 'remote switch' - the one that also turns on the light?

My preference is that the fan does not automatically turn on (manual overide) when the lightswitch is turned on...

What do you advise that I do?

I would be most grateful for any help that you can offer.

Kind wishes,

Spencer

SOURCE: wireing a bathroom extractor fan to a three switch (fan=landing light=offswitch0

yes, if the three switches are all made together, then there is only one feed. sounds like a bad switch, or possibly bad exhaust fan. check voltage at fan with switch on, if not qualified, be careful, or call an electrician

I have moved into a property with a Sector extractor fan in the bathroom - when you turn the light on the extractor starts up -when you turn the light off the extractor continues to run for a long time -...


On some Bathroom extractor fans there is a setting for the amount of time you want the fan to stay on after you turn off the switch, the setting dial is normally at the back of the fan so you need to take the fan down from the ceiling making sure the fan is electrically isolated.

I need help hooking up my bathroom fan and light i have three wires going to the bathroom fan and light white black and ground i want a swith to turn off the bathroom light one to run the light to the fan...


Right now a single switch turns on both light and fan.
You want to put in a double switch to control light and fan separately.

But the problem is there is not a separate wire to each the light and fan.
You need a separate wire to each, but the circuit wasn't wired that way.
Usually when the circuit is wired for separate control, there is a red wire that also goes to ceiling box.

Unless you run another wire to the ceiling box, it won't be possible to control light and fan separately.

Electrician can do this pretty easily if there is attic space above bathroom.

Hi I have an alto extractor fan in my bathroom but it doesn't activate when I turn on the light. Any ideas on how to fix it? Thanks


you may have a fan operating from purely from a built in humidistat instead of being operated from the light switched . If that is the case an electrician may be able to alter the wireing to have the light switch overide the humidistat, or even adjust the integral humidistat to a lower setting and operate the boost at a lower relative humidity level.

My bathroom fan will not turn itself off, it is connected to the bathroom light, light is turned off but fan goes continuiously??????


Then it is not connected to the light switch as you think. This could be a dangerous situation, and you should have an experienced electrician look at it.

My Bathroom Extractor Fan does not work properly and for some reason the bathroom smells of cigarette smoke when the upstairs neighbours are at home!! Our landlord say's this is not possible!!!


Yes, very possible!. The bathroom fan is connected together, and the upstairs one is down-drafting to you. Have the exhaust checked for blockage, or buy a fan that has a built-in damper that closes the exit when not in use.

Bathroom extractor fan won't switch off


The fan most likely is turned on by the bathroom light switch. You likely have a defective fan motor.
