Question about Electrical Supplies
What is the correct way to wire them so each switch controls light & fan seperately. I have 1 power cable coming from a ciruit breaker (blk, wht, gnd), 1 cable going to light, & 1 cable going to fan. My bathroom switches were working fine for so many years. And one day, suddenly stop working. (Same time, one of bedroom wall switch stopped working. I checked again this morning & it's working fine) I don't remember the original wiring of bathroom wiring; I don't remember changing any wires... Currently, all GND wires are tied together and conected to GND screws of each switch. All Nutural (wht) wires are tied together. Hot (blk) wire is connected a screw of switch and blk wire to fan is connected to another screw of switch. Same for light switch with hot (blk) of fan and light wires are tied together. When circuit breaker is turned on, I see hot wire is hot, yet when I turn the switch on, nothing happens. Is this wiring correct? Should I replace the switch? Thank you in advance for your help.

If you removed a switch there should be two wires. Connect one of the wires to each of the switch wires or screws. good luck

Just take either one of the black wires from the switch and connect it to the group of black wires. Then take the remaining black wire from the switch and connect it to the single black wire coming into the light kit. Finally check the bulbs to be sure they're not burned out.
Thanks and good luck
