Interference or Yellow Light is Blinking on Lightning Detector Model #06045M


When the detector cannot detect lightning due to interference from nearby equipment, the sensor's interference indicator will flash.

  1. If the detector is experiencing interference, relocate the sensor.
  2. Make sure the sensor is placed at least 3 feet (.9 m) away from electronics that may cause interference. 

Some sources of interference can include:

  • Electric motors (windshield wiper motor or fan motors in cars, hard drive and optical drive motors on your PC and AV equipment, well pumps, sump pumps, etc.) 
  • CRT monitors (PC monitors, TV's) 
  • Fluorescent light fixtures (turned off or on) 
  • Microwave ovens (while in use) 
  • PC's and mobile phones
