    What do you mean "in series"? Do you want 3 switches, one for each, but located together in one place?

If you want to have the switches wired in series, you will have to run wires to and from the switches to every device and have to have multiple things on to turn on the devices. It is not practical to wire in series. Say the ceiling light is the first switch in the series and the vanity is the third. You have to turn on the ceiling light and the fan just to turn on the vanity. It does not make sense. It is far more practical to wire the switches in parallel with each switch and device having their own switch leg. You can turn anything on and off independent of the others AND save a substantial amount of wire opposed to series, wich would require your wiring to go to and from the switches three times (SIX runs!).

6161T timer switch LEDs just blink for the fan. The light works on the fan. The fan works on straight 120v.

Leviton 6161 is shown on Leviton as 500 watt incandescent-only 4-level dimmer that cannot control a fan.
If this is a ceiling fan and light, then search for fan light dimmer, or fan control,

If this is bathroom fan-light installation, you are needing a countdown timer rated for both bulb and fan... which will require Neutral wire...

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.

Our switch for the ceiling fan burned out today. Instead of getting the same type of switch (rotary knob with push on/off) I bought a Pass & Seymour combination toggle switch (dual on/off toggle...

The wire to the ceiling fan are meant to send voltage to the fixture only and are not usually wired to control both the light and the fan independently. In order to do that, you may have to pull another set of wires to the switch box and then connect them to the light circuit in the box where the fan is. In regards to the other wiring that you mentioned, it makes no sense that the wires go to the stove fan and the bathroom fan unless those wires are source wires that carry the incoming voltage.

My fan does not light switch turns on light however to shut it off i must use the fan switch.Is the switch my problem.

It sounds to me like there is a wiring problem. The light is connected at the fan and at the wall switch so thats why when you turn the switch on at the wall it can be controlled at the fan as well. It sounds to me as though the actual fan motor to run the fan is not connected to the power circuit so the wiring needs to be looked at,

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.
