Need a little help please! I’ve changed every outlet and switch in this house except this one. When I finally got to it, I got a surprise! Sadly, I did not take a picture or remember how it was wired before, but I know it was wired incorrectly as one part didn’t work.
What I have > Three sets of wires coming in, two with just black/white/ground and a third with black/white/red/ground.
The B/W/R controls the bathroom light. One B/W is the bathroom vent fan and the third is tied to a light/switch on the other side of the hallway. When I reconnected what I thought was correct, when the hallway light is on, the vent fan wont turn on.
I’ve attached a little drawing of what I have coming in. This is going to be connected to a double switch toggle where the light is controlled on top and the fan on the bottom. No Idea what to do with the third set of wires and how they tie in. Just want the single pole switch on the other side to continue to work for the light as before.
The switch they’re being connected to has four posts on it, two on left and two on right. Ground wires are all taken care of, that part is good to go!
What I know so far.
LIGHT WIRING: Black and Red make the light go on and off. FAN WIRING: White from fan, black from light make fan go on and off. THIRD: Wires didn’t respond to anything, however they were turned off at the switch on the other side.
