Question about Broan-NuTone FAN CONTROL SWITCH
I am trying to wire a light/vent/heater switch (3 separate controls) and find that the way I have it wired, I must have the light switch on in order to work the fan or heater switches. How can I wire this switch (3 separate on/off controls) so that I can work one at a time (with out the light on)?
One foot note: This new switch replaces the old switch that was also a 3 way switch. Thanks for any help you all can provide!
Wiring a bathroom combination vent, heater, light 3 way switch means more wires. In brief, you need to run two cables - one a two wire and one a three wire from the switch to the fan.
Incoming power will have white black and ground.
The two wire cable for the switch to the fan will have wht, blk, and ground.
The three wire will have red, blk, wht, and grnd.
The switch will likely have 2 blacks and a red coming from it, with two blacks and a red on one side, and a single black on the other.
The fan should have a red, blue, green, black, and white.
On the fan end: Group all green/copper grounds together and use a wire nut to fasten them together. Tape the nut to the wires.
There will be five white wires coming through. For ease of handling, using wire nuts, connect two on one nut and three on the other.
connect the blue to a blck. Connect one red to one black, and the other red to the other black.
The switch will have one red going into the 3 wire cable, a black going to the 3 wire cable, and a black form incoming power to the side opposite the 3 wires, and a blck going to the two wire cable.
