Can anyone help me with a dead extractor fan? My bathroom extractor fan is 10 years old and normally comes on when the ceiling light switch is pulled. I've changed the fuse in the isolator box and checked the wiring in the fan which all seems to be secure. Any suggestions as to anything else it could be? I can't see any other serviceable parts, even though I've pulled the fan out of the wall for a full inspection.

Check across supply terminals of fan with a multimeter on resistance range and see if there is a reading
(Switch of supply first).

Then turn the supply back on, and check with the voltage range to see if there's a supply getting there...
