Was it wired up there before with the 2 switches? One for the fan and the other for the light? You will have to take the plug out of the fan and cut the ends and wire nut them to their wire on the switch. Otherwise it be on when the switch is on. Or,,,, Find the right wire inside there and make sure it is separated from the light and hook it up that way, then it can stay plugged into the fan unit. Check it out, hope this helps.

Five conductors are needed to wire 8663rp does that mean five wires is needed to wire fan?


It's a NuTone household fan.
Five conductors usually means five wires, though for example two of the same may be for the same purpose, 0V eg.
The fan also contains two lights. The control of fan and lighs delends on how you choose to wire it up. -

I want to use a TM8111 swithch to control 3 devices. A ceiling fan/light combo, night light and a vanity light. How do I hook it up?


Following image has basic wiring plan.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/TM8111-switch-wiring-500.jpg

Each Load (light-or-fan) has to have separate wire running to switch box.
If night light is plugged into wall outlet, then a new wire will have to be added going to switch box.
Most night lights have built in photo eye, and on-off switch.

Add a comment for more help and include specific wiring and what you have tried so far.

I have a 3 year old Panasonic Whisperlite FV-08VQL4 ceiling fan for the bathroom, with two CFL bulbs (18W each). One of the two bulb locations is bad -- it won't turn on, regardless of replacing the bulb...


Sounds like a loose wire inside the unit. But, I would try this. With the power off, both switch and circuit breaker, try and bend the center contact for the light bulb out; pull it out away from the back of the socket. This may be the bad contact. The center contact on the bulb touches this in order to get power up into the bulb. Using a small screw driver, try and scrape the surface of this contact to clean it a bit. DO ALL OF THIS WITH THE POWER OFF!!!
Hope this helps.

Combo lite/vent fan/nite light affected by heat?


There's probably a thermal switch in the fixture which turns the fan on when the lights are on for a period of time and heat accumulates in the fixture. It sound like the heat from the attic is setting off the thermal switch. When the attic heat drops, the fixture works correctly.

This is a catch 22 situation, because if the upper housing in the attic is insulated from the attic heat, the insulation will prevent heat dissipation from the heat generated by the fixture's light bulbs. So, for safety reasons, the upper housing should not be insulated.
I'll need to work on this to come up with a fix.

Not sure how to wire this switch


Switch will have a commom terminal that the hot wire connects to.
The other three terminals are for the devices -- light, fan and other device.

The white wires should be the grounded wire returns for the circuits unless they are identified by color tape to be hot line side of power.

Be careful of the grounded side of circuit, can shock or kill, treat all wires as being energised. If you are not sure, use a electrical tester,
or get help.

Re: wiring the FV-08VKS1


The black and white in the fan box are the main power and neutral for normal (low speed) of the fan. The two reds are the signal wires. It is basically a switch loop. You will actually need a total of 4 conductors (plus a ground) in order to run the high and low speed of the fan. The four conductors consist of 1) power from one switch to power up the fan, 2) neutral, 3) signal going to second switch, 4) signal going back to fan from second switch in order to run high speed. Without four conductors you can still run the high speed only by tying the two red wires in the fan together. This would be like always having the second swith in the on position. Hope this helps.
