Replacing existing bathroom light switch

Postby barney1 » Sun Nov 07, 2010 1:54 pm

Hello, I'd really appreciate some help in rewiring a light switch to the bathroom.
The switch controls the overhead lights and a shaver sockets and is located outside the bathroom.
Two cables run into the switch. One cable is blue, yellow and red (with (I think) the earth cut back) and one cable is red only. Cable one currently has the blue and yellow going to common and one red to the top of the switch. Then there is a single red cable that is connects to a single red from the Cable two at the bottom the bottom of the switch. I want to replace the existing switch with a simple switch that has two L1s tL2s and two commons. All help would be appreciated!! Thanks in advance.
