Triple rocker switch to control 3 function bathroom fan/light

I have installed a triple rocker switch to control a new Panasonic bathroom ventilation fan with fan, light and separate night light functions. I have power at the switch, ran a common 'hot' to all 3 black wires in the fan, then ran separate white wires back to the switch. all components work, however, they do not work together. When I turn on the night light, then turn on the fan, the night light goes out? What have I done wrong? It seemed pretty straight forward when wiring.

I suggest you cut 3 pigtails out of your black wire (about 5-6" each and strip them so you can put a nut to tie them all together on the main wire, then do the same for your grounds using green 5-6" strips of wire and then connect all 3 switches with the pigtails to their proper locations. This WILL fix your problem.

Separate 1 switch 3 lights


You need separate wire going to each light.

Single pole and 3 pole to control each light separately: must identify black wire to each light. If each light does not have separate black wire inside the switch box, then it is not possible.

Wiring problem


11-1-12
Thanks for link to manual.
Solution might take more response for full clarity, and you seem a good electrician.
I have numbered two questions that may be unimportant.
Add a comment, response after 5 pm CST

Here is illustration showing Black Hot and White Neutral in attic junction box, as you described. With black-red-blue wires connected as shown in Broan manual. And each device connected to White neutral wire in junction box.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Triple-fan-light-night-light.jpg

You have access to attic, and can drop another cable down wall into switch box. This will give necessary total 4 wires between switch and Broan
http://waterheatertimer.org/OWB1.html

Key start point: Junction box in attic has the Black Hot wire and White neutral coming from circuit breaker box.
This cable powers the junction box.

There are 3 cables in junction box, each cable with black and white.
Cable from breaker box with Hot and Neutral. Cable going to light switch.
Another cable jumps power to next box in the circuit, and will be reconnected when finished, black-to-black white-to-white

Old light switch in wall was single pole.
1) How many cables are inside switch box? Just one cable from attic with black and white wire?
2) 3-way switch is the wrong switch, unless you mean 3-pole triple switch with 3 screw terminals on one side of device?

Here is another link that shows wiring choices if you decide to use 3 separate switches (or timers or occupancy sensor to turn on night light) instead of triple switch: Install triple box.

Hello sandman, STOP!! Dont do anything else until you kill the bathroom breaker in the breaker box
located by your elect meter. Got it off? Now get a shop light, flashlight, even a lamp w/ext cord.
Position the light so you can see the wires coming out of the wall for switch. The black wires are
the hot ones & the white ones are the return(no power) You have wired your new switch incorrectly
causing the breaker to trip. Check how you have wired the new switch. You neeed one black & one
white wire for each function of the switch. If there is a green wire, it,s for grounding the switch.
Some newer switches have install info stamped on the switch. Kinda hard to see sometme.
Let me know. Happy wiring.......................dansky66

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

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.

Can a normal two part wall switch run all three parts of a panasonic whisperlite fan/light/night light combo


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.
