Have three gang hall bath switch panel in which the first two control the fan and light; third does nothing. Have tested all outlets and other lights; third switch seemingly inert yet wired to other two, with lone red wire. Current tester across switch yields no current regardless of switch position.

Just want to lose third useless switch and replace with blank. Anyone got easy solution?

  • Third wire may be for a light over sink. And wire is in the wall – user101687 Jun 2 '19 at 0:37
  • What do you mean by "current tester"? Can you post a photo of the inside of the box please? – ThreePhaseEel Jun 2 '19 at 0:48
