Hi I recently bought an extractor fan with a downlight from B&Q.
Supposed to be simple to install.
I am trying to add the power for the fan from the light circuit but also have it on seperate switch. I initially had one switch for the light but bought a double.
I have two cables (both Red) going to the original switch.
I have tried connecting one red to the common and the other to L1 in the new switch - Light works fine. On - Off
The problem is when I try to add the fan.
I have aded a jumper cable from the common to the other common and taken one lead (again both cbles in his unit are black) and put this in with the second common and the other cable to the other L1 but cannot get power to the fan.
I have messed around with different combos but I can only get to work in conjunction with the light although I want it to work independently.
Is this possible and if so how?
Many Thanks inadvance for any advice given.
