I want to install an extractor fan in a cloakroom/shower room that I
have, so I bought one from Wickes with a pull-switch. I understand that
the fan needs to be supplied via a double-pole switch located outside
the room (is this correct?). I also understand that the pull switch
should not be accessible from the shower - which mine might just about
be. Can anyone tell me if it would be ok if I remove the pull-switch so
that the fan can only be operated via the double-pole switch - and also
if I can wire the fan via the lighting circuit?
On the plus side a fan is OK from the lighting circuit and a double pole
pull switch will be fine as an isolator (if there is no timer over run). The
transformer for a 12v fan may be located in the ceiling void above the fan.
Any problems or queries then post again
