I am a pure amateur at this so please forgive me for how silly this might sound. All I ask is for patience and simple answers (since I am as smart as a child at this). I have a circuit that I am trying to figure out how to wire. It is a 6V circuit that should be around 2.6A. There is an initial simple on/off switch to turn the entire circuit on and off. Once the circuit is powered on I want two 6V fans to begin cycling and to remain so while the on/off switch is engaged. From here the power will need to go to four devices that will require power in forward AND in reverse. My current set up ran the on/off switch through the fans to the DPDT switch for the forward and reverse devices. With the circuit being wired in its current configuration the fans seem to lose power when the other devices are also powered on but I need each component to work fully. If I wire the fans to terminate by themselves and run separate power to the DPDT switch, then the devices on the DPDT do not fully energize while the fans do. The fans can not connect to the DPDT switch because reversing polarity to the fans ruins them. This is honestly the first project that I have ever done and any help would be very appreciated. Thanks you all for your time!
