Low voltage GE electric Relay system
I have the low voltage electric system common in houses built in the 50s/60s. A royal pain the rear - no clue why they did this
Anyway - my bathrooms fans have both stopped working (and heated lamps) and ive traced the culprit back to the Relay Box in the crawl space - any idea how to proceed and find out if its a dodgy relay ?

First, you should troubleshoot the switches and wiring to ensure that the relay is getting a signal.

If the control voltage is present, and the relay is inoperative, then replace the relay.

You could swap the relay with another working one to eliminate that possibility if you don't want to put out the cost of a new unit.... :wink:
