exhaust fan wiring

I am after a wiring diagram for a Mistral 6108-0 exhaust fan. Im in a new house and the fan has never worked. I dissembled it to find no power connected - there are 3 unused terminals on it. There is a power and earth lead seemingly there for the purpose but is not connected. Which wire goes to which terminal? thks Lindsay

The terminals have to be labeled somehow. I notice you didn't bother to tell us the labeling. I suppose you think I'm gonna spend the next ten minutes looking up the manual?

Ain't gonna happen. Here's a brief summary. You figure it out, or give us some useful information. Your choice.

One terminal is hot. It will be labeled HOT, LIVE, LINE, L1, L, or H, or have a BLACK or RED wire attached to it. This connects to the hot/black/red wire from the wall.

Another terminal is neutral. It will be labeled NEUTRAL, NEUT, or N, or have a WHITE wire attached to it. This connects to the neutral/white wire from the wall.

The third terminal should be ground. It will be labeled GROUND, GRND, GND, or E, or have a ground symbol (a triangle made up of 3 horizontal lines with one vertical line above them). It connects to the ground/bare/green wire from the wall, if'n there is one.

Likely you are in Oz? If so, someone familiar with that electrical system should chime in. Most responses here based on US/Canada system.

Bob 22.,

Yes the OP is from OZ area and I will fill in the requirement.,

OK for your fan the bleu is netural while the brown is active unless you have older conductor colour code then Black is netural while red is active { Live } and on your unit you should see marking A and N and E.

Do you have a wall switch near the fan unit ?? if so you may want to take a look to see if that hooked up as well.
