Power to outlet and lights

1030 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  DannyT
Hi, I've been installing a new plug outlet and ceiling fan in the bathroom. I have it set so the power has been spllit at the box coming in - 1 wire runs into a 2 way switch which in turn runs to the light above the vanity and the other switch to the ceiling fan. The other line where I splitt at the box coming in runs to a new outlet. I am getting power to all 3 sources when i use a tester (makeshift lightbulb with wires) and the switch is working fine in terms of cutting/supplying the power, however when i wire up the fan, or the vanity light or plug anything into the outlet they don't work. Any ideas? Thanks.

Reset the GFCI?
Is it tripping the gfci or circuit breaker ?
If the test lamp indicates power there,
then it can only be incorrect wiring !
Can you post a diagram of your wiring ?
And the color of the wires.
what color are the wires and where are they connected. are you running this off of one 2 wire with ground or a 3 wire with ground?

as dmxtothemax said a diagram would be helpful or a few pictures even
