Monrose bathroom fan won't shut off

by Chrispen » Thu Dec 28, 2023 12:32 pm

I bought a replacement fan extractor with 2 wires only. My old fan had 3 wires, brown, grey and black. On the new fan I connected brown to live, grey to neutral, and tucked away black. The fan will not shut off when light swith is turned on. Please help as I have run out of ideas.

I would guess you have connected it wrong.
The wires you have (Not counting earth) are Permanent Live, switched Live, neutral.
You have connected the fan to permanent Live and neutral
You should have connected it to Neutral and Switched live
