what do you think is happening here? I bought a humidifier from amazon that died--so in my review I mention that there is an FCC warning?

that says that it emits radio wave energy that might interfere with TVs and radios. the co. immediately took down the product website.

are they bugging humidifiers now?? lol

    Either the warning was included due to an error 

    or the unit actually has something in it that develops a little RF. 



    A lot of things emit some RF as a consequence of normal operation. 

    Fluorescent and LED lights do it.   


    Aquarium heaters with bad bimetal thermostats 

    are Notorious for interfering with AM radio reception.  


    Have a gas furnace and/or a gas dryer? 

    Unless it's so old that it has a pilot flame, 

    it will emit RF when the ignitor is on. 


    There are plenty more examples out there.
