    this is for expierienced one, new to me

    i got asked to replace fan in a flat other day by landlord , said no problem, so when got home from work went up and had seen the fan is inside the shower cubicle(the fan is ipx4 but less than 2m high) and stuck to wall with ssilicone,

    took off the cover and could see straight away that the neutral was in the permanent live terminal or switched live terminal anyway turned off lights and tested the voltage and swapped connection and fixed this to wall with screws

    can any of you shed any fault with the neutral being in wrong terminal

    wrongly wired and stuck on with silicon. don't need hercule poirot to deduce that it was probably the builder dunnit.

    well iwas going to xharge him £15 quid but it is upto £30 now

    there is no rcd's on the lighting, what do you think about the the fan being inside the cubicle..

    to be honest i told guy too pull the fuse while i got my drill to fix it to wall and he actualy turned off lights at switches in the whole flat and i did get a buzz
