This is something I spoke to you a couple of years back with our hovabator and with your thermostat. I think it an arcing effect and I solved it fairly easily. Our house has two fused (circuit breakers) power circuits as well as a light, hot water and electric stove circuits.

I was originally running the hovabator on the same power circuit that ran the electronic entertainment stuff (TV, DVD, sound surround etc) but off a different power point. It was a frequent noise interuption on the TV as the hovabator switched.

I swapped it to a powerpoint on the second power circuit and the noise interuption on the electronic entertainment stuff stopped. Mind you as it switched it then kickstarted the davey water pump into its four second test cycle everytime.

My Hoverbator does the same thing. Fuzzy tv picture. We survived. We only have five channels anyway since we live in a blackhole for signals.

But good luck Winglet. It's great fun :thumbs:

What you say is true Mike, moving the inc so that it affects a different circuit and not your TV works.

It isn't just that the switch is bouncing that can cause noise in your wiring, even a perfect switch OFF to ON will send some noise. Solenoids such as those in Washing Machines are usually what most people will notice.

I should have made it more clear that it will depend on your TV too. If your TV is worth a bit then you should strongly consider getting a surge protector and filter. Some would have this built into the TV some don't. The way you can tell is wait till mating magpies or lightning send a couple of thousand volts through your power supply. If your equipment survives then you don't need a surge protector.
