Why is my treadmill causing interference with my Cable TV?

I have an HDTV that works fine until I start my treadmill. The treadmill seems to be causing the TV to go blurry / fuzzy and becomes unwatchable when the treadmill motor is running. How can I get my TV to show clearly when the treadmill is running?

If you are experiencing your TV going black/ fuzzy / blurry / or scrambled picture when your treadmill is running, then you need to plug the TV and Treadmill into separate outlets that are on different fuses in the electrical box.

Also make sure the TV is plugged into a surge protector and the Treadmill is plugged into a single surge protector without other electronics.

If you are using extension cords, make sure the the cords are properly shielded.

Also make sure the the cords for the TV and Treadmill are not near each other. I'd also keep the treadmill cord away from the cable for the TV.
