    Difference between LS and LT - Extractor Fan

    Hello. Was wondering if anyone can help. Just had bathroom done and the fitter installed an inline Osily extractor which, quite frankly, is useless! So I've replaced it with a Manrose MF100T which is far better. However, the Osily has a N, L and LT connection. The Manrose has a N, L and LS...

    I'm wanting to fit a manrose mf100s extractor fan in a new bathroom but have it activate from a occupancy sensor. I know that manrose make one but at £100 it's a bit too expensive. Would something like this work instead 360° Ceiling Flush Mount PIR Occupancy Switch?

    How can I tell of an inline extractor fan is working?

    Hi, I have an extractor fan in a bathroom,after lifting the floor boards above it turns out there is also an iine fan. How can I tell of it's working or not? I guess if it's not working it will create more resistance for the air pumped by the other fan.

    How does the Silent Tornado Ip45 bathroom fan work?

    Hi, I've recently had this fan installed and I'm very confused to how it works. I think it has a humidity sensor and there is a timer on there as well. The electrian has set the timer but they said there's no numbers on the timer, so they don't know how long it's set for. So far I've counted...

    Hi, I can't think of another word, but my Vent Axia VASF100T stopped working about a week ago. When I take off the fan cover to show the fan blades with the isolation switch on, the blades are what can best be described as twitching. They are rotating maybe 2mm ever second or so, but never...
