I have a Vent-Axia ACM 100T in-line extractor fitted above the bathroom operated by the bathroom light switch. I need to change it so that it is controlled independently as the young grandchild, a very poor sleeper - is in the adjutant bedroom so the unit is only operating as and when required. The terminals on the unit are L, N and LS. I have tried just using the L and N without success. If I link the L and LS together will that work?

I have contacted Vent-Axia for guidance without reply

As wine~O would say, leccy off first.

You will need to add an extra switch (ceiling switch?) remove the wire from LS and put it in a choc bloc (This is a must as it comes live when the light is on)
Then take the L wire and connect it to one side of your new switch
Connect a wire from the other side of your new switch to the L of the fan.
Take a link wire from L of the fan to LS of the fan

Hi someone-else

Many thanks for your advice. I should have added that I would like to 'disconnect' the timer as well so when it is switched off the unit stops running immediately and there is no run on period.

So long as are only using a "switched live" and linking that to the permanent live then the fan will not run on after it's switched off.
