Wiring Bathroom fan to dual switch
Hey guys, i'm having some issues wiring in a new exhaust fan for the bathroom. Currently i only have a switch working the light over the sink. I'm adding a fan only exhaust fan in the ceiling. I've installed the fan and have a 14/2 running in the switch box with the light switch. I'd like to put an over/under dual switch and have the top to the light on the wall and the other to the fan only exhaust. I'm not running a switch for a fan with light exhaust it's just a fan only. the light switch is only for the light over the vanity. Currently i have in the switch box: two 14/2 wires with the whites connected together and the grounds connected together. both blacks are going to the single switch. As it should be wired. How do i install the fan switch using this setup. so far i've run the whites and grounds together as they should be (seperate of coarse whites together and ground together) i connected all blacks together and make 2 legs to go to the over/under double switch and broke the tab in the middle and the light and fan come on but will not turn them off.
