    when you turn on bathroom light the fan does start but the noise sounds strained until you switch the light off when it makes its correct noise for a while before turning off.

Yes, if the three switches are all made together, then there is only one feed. sounds like a bad switch, or possibly bad exhaust fan. check voltage at fan with switch on, if not qualified, be careful, or call an electrician

I am replacing my bathroom extractor fan which is a S & P 250/100 which has a timer with the silent version that does not have a timer. The old one has 4 wires red/blue/yellow/earth but the new on only has...


New fan only needs two wires, the one from the switch (normally red) and the other a white coming from the switch box. Look in the switch box to see color going to fan, one will be from the switch and the other coming through the switch box not connecting to the switch. Tape off the unused wires.

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

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.

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.

Hi I have an alto extractor fan in my bathroom but it doesn't activate when I turn on the light. Any ideas on how to fix it? Thanks


you may have a fan operating from purely from a built in humidistat instead of being operated from the light switched . If that is the case an electrician may be able to alter the wireing to have the light switch overide the humidistat, or even adjust the integral humidistat to a lower setting and operate the boost at a lower relative humidity level.

My bathroom fan will not turn itself off, it is connected to the bathroom light, light is turned off but fan goes continuiously??????


Then it is not connected to the light switch as you think. This could be a dangerous situation, and you should have an experienced electrician look at it.

Wiring Bathroom light/vent/heater switch with 3 separate controls


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.

There. Confused?
