I have built a faraday cage and placed a 12vdc fan in side the cage with battery. The cage with the fan is placed in the microwave oven, 1100 watts. The cage seems to stop the fan from being damaged by the microwaves, it took several tries to get this right. But now when the magnetron comes on the fan goes off; then starts up again when the magnetron turns off. Is this an induced current and my wires are the antennas? Is this a ground problem? Is this a magnetic field build up? I am stumped. Thank you for your help.
