How to install Nutone Fan/Light/Nightlight - SKIP the nightlight?


Hello, I have a new Nutone Fan/Light/Nightlight that I am installing. However, we're not ready to run the new wire for the nightlight so I want to leave that out of the wiring for now.

I have a Black/White/Red/Grd coming in and on the housing I have Blue/White for the LIGHT, Red/White for the Nightlight and Black/White for the Fan.

Any ideas?

Fan and documentation are here:

That makes sense - guess I'm just being extra careful.

I think I end up doing the following.

White to White (fan) and White (light)
Black to Black for the fan
Red to Black for the light
Ground to green

leave the red/white pair for the nightlight disco'd

Make sense?

A nice change from the recent spat of DIY questions that makes you wonder what they are smoking....

CONNECT the night-light together with the regular light. Install a bulb in both sockets.

Then, when the regular light bulb burns out, your night light can provide a minimal amount of light until you replace the main bulb.
