Hi guys

I'm wanting to wire a new bathroom extractor fan with a timer and I need some more cable. From the isolator switch I believe I need a live, switched live and neutral cables to go direct to the extractor fan. Would this cable be suitable?

It's 3 core 1.5mm.

Any advice greatly appreciated :help: :help:

That cable is not suitable for your job.

You need something like

Rachel25 just to add, the reason the cable you listed is wrong is that it is only 3 core, you need 3 core AND earth, not to mention your one is flex, and you should use "rigid" I am not even going to say heat resistance.

Which is correct? Metre or Meter? Click the link to find out more.

Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?

If gloom had a voice, it would be me. :mrgreen:

Or using the green/yellow as a switched live :wink: Although that is not exempt from the regs the exemptions would not apply in this case.
