""Can you tell me if I at least did the configuration right""

.....NO it is WRONG....

I suggested a safe TEST to determine IF the wiring (without switches)was set-up as we ASSUMED and WORKING !

DO YOU HAVE ANY TEST EQUIPMENT .....VOM.....neon test light ???

IS the Fan and Light in the same unit?

(1)...Switches Make/Break the HOT wire....

(2)...Devices feed from a GFCI must be "neat" ......any mis-wire or Ground to neutral contact and the GFCI will trip or fail to reset....

(3)...IF as you say.....NOTHING works when the circuit is energized "as-is".....then you have NO POWER supplied to the swithes at the moment ....that's why we test......

(4)..."Electricity is an Equal-Opportunity Killer"

"......measure Once.....cut Twice....

throw that one away and cut a new one...."

Do you realize that is was the previous occupants who wired this and not me?

I would like help/suggestions without all of the negativity please.

Thanks for all the kind words.....hmmm!

Troubleshooting is difficult from here....with a tester in Venice it could be determined in about 10 seconds.....

We KNOW how the switch should be wired....

Look at the new's actually two separate switches with the right jumper the only COMMON.....the HOT connects to the right.......each switch Top and Bottom...has it's own output....RE: Red wire top/Black wire bottom

opps, you bought the wrong combo switch can make this work but it will require testing to determine which one of the top screws to use.......

BUT that's not the problem have no power at the box....if you did SOMETHING should have worked in the last the upstream GFCI is a likely culprit......MAYBE it's all the sloppy wiring causing the GFCI to trip/or in the case of ground/neutral fault.....the GFCI will fail-to-reset....Na-Da

Nork nice...come back
