Question about Broan-NuTone P66V Fan Control Switch

Open Question

I have a three function switch in my bathroom. Two Last evening after showering, I turned off the light and the heater and left the exhaust fan run for several minutes. When I returned to the bathroom later that evening, the light and the exhaust fan would not turn on, but the heater would. After fumbling with the controls for a minute, the light and exhaust came on. This morning though, no matter what I have done, I cannot get the light or the exhaust to turn on.

SOURCE: how do i hook up

Ok you only have two switches, so you would use one switch for your bathroom light, and the other for both the fan and the light, the light will come on when you turn the fan on.Connect the incoming black (hot) wire to both switches. Then connect the black wire to the switch you want for your light. Connect the other black to the second switch that goes to your fan and light. Connect the three white wires together (neutral) Connect all ground wires together, and leave a pigtail to connect to the ground terminal on the light switch. If you want separate switches for light in the fan and fan, you will need another conductor and a three gang switch.

SOURCE: i need help hooking up my bathroom fan and light i

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.

SOURCE: I just replaced my heater/fan/light

I know wiring and we can solve this problem.

A better description of your wires in required.
Then 'add a comment' at bottom of page, and it e-mails me, and then I can hook up the wires for you.
The following 8 questions are key to solving the problem.

The heater-fan-light has how many wires?
Exactly what color are the fan wires?

How many cables enter the fan-light-heater box?
Does each cable have a black-and-white?
Are all these cables from the switches?
Are there other cables that enter the fan-light-heater box?
How many switches control the fan-light-heater device?
Is each switch a simple on-off switch or are there 3-way switches too (a switch at each end of a hall is example of a 3-way switch)

If you 'add a comment' I'll be here for next 3-4 hours
We'll get it done

SOURCE: Model 100HFL...with the light switched

I'm not sure what is going on without full and complete description of wiring and switches:
Add a comment with exact information for possible help.
Specs say 20 amp circuit is needed: so 20 amp circuit breaker + 12 gauge wire are required.
Heater uses 1500 watts, so it pulls a lot of power if same circuit breaker is used for several other rooms and a TV etc. Turn off everything else and see if problem persists.
Sell sheet for product says: Energy efficient lighting - uses one 27-watt (max.) high efficiency GU24 based fluorescent lamp.
Turn off power, and disconnect ground wire. Turn power back on and switch on the heater-lite and see if there is a fault to ground.
Use a different switch.

When I'm in my bathroom and showering the light turns red- what does this mean- Mold?. moisture?


The simple answer is moisture. If you have a bathroom exhaust fan, be sure to run it during and after you're showering. Typically, for a bathroom exhaust fan to reduce the moisture properly, it should remain ON for at least 15 minutes after your showering is complete,

Hope this helped to answer your question.

The bathroom exhaust fan in our bungalow is leaking this past week every few days , we are not handy folks and so we are wondering what type of professional do we call in to deal with this leak and...


Sounds like the issue is simply condensation inside the exhaust pipe where it passes through the un-heated attic space. If you use the shower and the exhaust fan, lots of humid air is passing over the inside surface of a very cold duct, then running back down to your bathroom ceiling. You could get any non-specialist handyman to wrap insulation around that duct in the attic. But you can mitigate the problem by running the fan for a few minutes before you start the shower (thereby pre-heating the duct before you give it a blast of moist air) , and leaving it run for 20 minutes afterwards (thereby drying out the duct after use). Regarding the discolored ceiling, the handyman can apply some stain-covering white primer too.

Okay jmurphy177...

You are now on record...
Any injuries or property damages after this are
COMPLETELY YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.

There is a SERIOUS reason the instructions say
to have a qualified electrician do the install...

Precisely...
There is NO WAY this switch may be turned around
and
IT MUST
have a NEUTRAL wire to OPERATE CORRECTLY.

Quite often a switch box will only have the
hot wires extended from the light fixture...

The COLOR of the wires in that configuration
MEAN NOTHING... and you are creating an EXTREME
HAZARD.

Please heed this warning... Everything else = negligence.

Most likely an ELECTRICIAN can run the additional wire you
need to function...

BATHROOMS are "WET" location and require SPECIAL SKILLS not to be deadly.

A Bryant 3 way independent rocker switch with red, black and white wires for 3 lights in bathroom one switch not working can i replace it with a Broan Nutone P66V three function control


397bfdd.jpgLeviton triple switch
fe442eb.jpgNutone P66V

Nutone looks like an ordinary three-switch combo being marketed as a bathroom 'fan switch.'
The screws on the device would tell the story.

Look at the Leviton screws:
The switch has dark-colored screw on one side >> the hot from breaker always connects to dark screws.
Other side of switch has 3 silver-colored screws, but these can be brass colored screws > the wires to fan light and heater connect to each of these screws.

Most likely the Nutone switch is identical to the Leviton
I say this because the descriptor on Amazon describes it as a 'fan' switch.
It's being marketed as a bathroom fan-light combo switch >>> so it looks like an ordinary three-combo switch

Does a bathroom require an exhaust fan even if it has a window


YES!!!! all a window does is change the vapor into liquid. What is needed is to get the moisture OUT OF THE building. I prefer Neutone 200 CFM unit, for get specs, they are all way too low. You are combating health issues if you allow moisture to remain....mold...

Also, the exhaust ducting needs to run downhill as it exits the building, or you risk moisture dripping from the fan...

Futher, put a 60 minute timer on the fan, and run 45 minutes (at least) for every shower....

Bathroom Ventilation Fan Motor Failures


I'm guessing that water isn't splashing up on this fan's motor, so the moisture that is causing the rust must be water vapor. The exact same water vapor that the fan is supposed to be removing. I have two suggestions before replacing the entire fan. One is to make sure that the ducting that carries the moist air out of the bathroom (and preferably out of the house altogether) is free of obstructions and that the fan can actually do it's job. Second is to actually run the fan, and run it a lot longer than you probably are right now. If it is running while you are in the shower and then you turn it off after you leave the bathroom, it can't possibly be removing that moisture. I'd invest in a countdown type timer and replace the existing switch with that. Set that thing for 30 or 60 minutes when you get in the shower and let it turn it off automatically.
