Found 22nd Sep 2010
I have an extract fan in my bathroom which no longer turns on with the lights. Would it be possible to remove the fan and replace it with a fan which has its own pull cord and wire it up to a standard plug to a socket which is in the cupboard of the adjoining room.

You would probably be better off using a fused spur rather than a plug and socket. Also the fan may be fine it might be the timer in the fan that has which case if you bypass the timer the fan will work.

Will the extractor fan take earth live and neutral wires

Surely the electrician who's fitting it knows the answer to these questions already?


have you got any windows in said room? i thought you had to have a fan to come on with light if no windows
