British General 10A 3-Pole Fan Isolator Switch White
10A 3 Pole Fan Isolator Switch
I installed an extractor fan into my bathroom and needed an Isolator switch. This one seemed like a decent switch for the price and looks decent too. I installed it and found it to wire with ease with decent termination points. Works well and does exactly what I want it to do.

Take care when connecting
As pointed out in a previous review the terminals of these switches and other BG switches are wider than the diameter of the screw and as a consequence some care is required to make sure that the conductor is beneath the screw when tightening otherwise it will ride up the side of the screw.

BG 3 Pole Fan Isolator Switch
DO NOT BUY THIS SWITCH! This switch does not work. Looks fine and I only bought it because the MK one was not in store. I had even read another review where another one was returned as faulty!
Thankfully I tested it for continuity before fitting:
L2-L2 Open Circuit regardless of Switch position
I managed to get a closed circuit on L2-L2 once or twice!
Screwfix should immediately withdraw this item from sale!
I now have a 30mile round trip to return it and the day I took off work to carry out the work is lost!

Good terminals fits in a 16mm deep box with care
Clear labeling on the front
Will be using these in future
