Extactor fan wiring


Hi all, hope you can help me, I removed an extractor fan to have it cleaned. I and never noticed at the time that it has 3 wires from the motor, brown, blue, and black. (plus the earth) There is also a capacitor that needs to be reconnected. The incoming supply is single phase, live and neutral but comes from a variable speed controller.
Any pointers would be appreciated.

So you just tore it all apart, without regard to where the conductors were connected? I say you got the fan you deserve.

If you care to post the manufacturer and model number, maybe we can help some more.

Hi,

I know crap about extractors...but there may be a wire diagram in/on the unit itself...even some motors have a diagram right on the motor itself.
