    I have just replaced the light fitting in our ensuite but the 240/115 V shaver/electric toothbrush and the extractor fan do not work. Does the lighting circuit normally supply the fan and shaver point ?

    Thanks in advance,

    Philip

    Did you put all of the wires back in exactly equivalent terminals?

    Then it should not be a surprise that something isn't going to work the same afterwards...

    @treacletown08 photos of the wiring after and (if you have them) the before pictures will help.

    Thank you all for your replies.

    Everything is working again now. The light fitting required the wires to be pushed into the terminal block which is a little fiddly.

    Cheers.
