Question about Broan-NuTone N-LS100SE Exhaust Fan Exhaust Fan
I'd like to replace an old bathroom fan with one that has a nightlight in it. But, I'm guessing that the wiring for the fan only will not operate both the fan and a light, unless there is such a thing as a high tech switch that can operate both with basic wiring. Am I right?
wiring troubles 4 wires 2 white 1 blue and 1 black
Let's say you originally only had one switch (to operate the fan). And at the fan you have only one black, one white, and one ground (bare or green). You can still put in a fan/light combo. but both the light and the fan will always come on together when you flip the switch. To do this you'd connect the black from the switch to the black AND the blue on the fan and connect the white from the switch to both whites on the fan and connect the ground from the switch to either a green or bare wire on the fan or to a green screw on the fan housing somewhere (whatever is available).
