I will do my best to explain the situation. I was changing out a light fixture in the bathroom and made the mistake of not paying close attention. I have discovered that the hood to my stove is wired in with my bathroom lights and fan. I have it working to a degree but would like to get it set up the right way. Everything works however you must turn on the bathroom light switch in order to run the light and fan on my hood. I have the following wires to work with. One white and one black from new light, one red, one black and three white coming from the wall. I have tried numerous combination but i cant get the hood to operate without a swich being on. There are two lights, a fan, and three switches (two run the lights and one for the fan). If i have confused you sorry! If you can help, LET ME KNOW!

Thanks

Could be that in the past the hot wire to the range hood simply made a stop at the bathroom switch, and you accidentally moved it to the top of the switch (from the bottom), thereby making it "switched".
