Guess you are going to have to point out the problem for me. I missed your point.

Where are you finding all of these DP/DT with one unused circuit? Double pole is not that common. Most houses have a couple of SP/DT used in the wiring. They are used in pairs.

Wiring diagrams ain’t gonna impress me. I’ve seen thousands, drawn hundreds of them. They are pretty simple.

The original poster already told you what fan he was using:

He told you how he wants it to work:

position 2 - overide off(for any reason i would want to turn it off, say water crossing or something)
position 3 - auto(controlled by thermostat)
So what’s hard about that? No need to complicate it. I assumed he would he would use some kind of circuit protection or would at least come back and ask when he got to that point.

There are 10 kinds of people in the world.
Those who understand binary and those who don't.
