Question about Dryers
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?

is the fan working correctly, if it is not it could be a bad armature or field

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
