Not clear on what the issue is.
Do you mean when you shut off the fan the outlets and light also loose power?

Welcome to the forums.

Can we assume you are the owner of the condo ?

You would need to turn power off to that circuit, pull the switch out of the box without disconnecting the wiring and posting a picture or two of the wiring so we can see it. How-to-insert-pictures

Hi, Pete!, Yes, I am owner of condo. All people of building are facing to same problem. The development guy replied that they install a special thing inside bathroom which is very sensitive to easy to make all power shut down specially turn off the bathroom fan. But it is not happen all times.

I see you are in New York.

It sounds like you need to reset a GFI breaker to get power back.
Is that how you reboot.... from that breaker in the electric panel ?

If the whole complex is wired like that there is a serious issue.
Has anyone brought in an electrician ?
