My bathroom vent and lights are on the same switch. The sound from the vent is annoying if you are only cleaning the room.
After pulling the switch, I noticed that there was one wire on a screw terminal and 2 wires on the other. When I disconnected the wires to install a double switch I noticed what I had assumed was 2 wires was really one wire with insulation removed at the center and connected to the terminal screw.
I cut this wire in half and conneced one end to each terminal and the hotwire to the hot terminal. It worked.
Is this correct?
