Re: Three Way Bathroom Fan Switch?

The problem bathroom has been fixed! Thank you! I'm now experiencing similar issues with the second bathroom that I'm trying to tackle. I anticipate that I'll experience the same issues with the third and final bathroom too. What on earth...? I will keep swapping wires until I get the outcome I wan...

Re: Three Way Bathroom Fan Switch?

That's where I get confused because that's what I thought too. But here's the photo I took before touching any of the wiring on the old switch. The black wire has been hooked up to one of the travellers because that's how it was on the old switch. And the switch appeared to be working fine before I...

Re: Three Way Bathroom Fan Switch?

I'm 100% sure there were three wires going to the old switch because I took a photo before I started pulling everything apart. I have that photo too if it's helpful to you? Yes! The above is correct too! (I'm so glad you're understanding what I'm saying.) The only other 3-way switch I can think of ...

Re: Three Way Bathroom Fan Switch?

It isn't a 3 way switch ! It was a fan controller I would think. That, or you would use a single pole switch in parallel with the humidisat (So if 'either' one is turned on, the fan goes on) Do you still have the old switch ?

Three Way Bathroom Fan Switch?

Hi folks! I've been replacing all the switches in my house today (light switches, etc) and I came to do my bathroom switches and came into a little trouble. I wasn't expecting it, but when I went to replace the bathroom fan switch in my bathroom, I found that it was controlled by a three-way switch....
