    Wiring a bathroom fan - new wiring colours advice needed

    Hi, replacing my bathroom fan, and have 3 wires plus a green/yellow earth that's sleeved.

    Can someone with experience tell me what is the permanent live, switched live and neutral from the colours brown, grey and black?

    Cheers.

    Yeah will do cheers.

    Don't think I've got it wired up correctly at the moment, as the light for the fan in permanently on, and the fan cuts off with the light switch, when it's supposed to over run with the timer.

    Just to confirm this wiring has worked. Thanks leemole - rep given.

    I want to replace an extractor fan in my toilet. The old wires are Red Yellow and Blue. They have to go into Neutral, Switched Live and Permanant Live. Which wire goes to which terminal??
