I only see socket for 4 wires. I'm pretty sure I seen that I have 5 or 6 wires?

The fact there are quite clearly 6 holes for wires there, probably means you should get an expert in to do this.

On the off chance you do this yourself, the supply cable will be L,N,E and they will go in the SUPPLY holes corresponding to the correct letters. The LOAD cable, coming from the extractor fan will go into the LOAD holes corresponding with the correct letters.

Goodluck.

It's the wrong switch for a extractor fan.
You have a fuse spur

Fan isolation switch

These ones have 6 terminals in the back. L1 L2 and N. One for the incoming wire and one for the outgoing wire.

Oh so where does the fuse go with that switch you linked?
There is no fuse as the fan circuit comes from the lighting supply which should be on a mains 6a Mcb in the consumer unit.

The issue with using a fused spur is that it isolates only the live (L1) There is no connection for a switched supply (L2) so the fan would still be live from the switch if the fused spurs was in an off position.

A fan isolation switch has no fuse and no need for one.

Is that actually an isolator or a fused spur switch?
