I assume there is some kind of interference.
Is there anyone that can explain this to me AND offer a solution?
Thank You for the time and effort to reply.
I know you want a simple answer and solution but there are too many possible variables and not enough actual hard data for some one not on site
with the needed equipment to render a quick answer.
The two seemingly contradictory items pose a problem in logic as to causation of loss of signal. Unless the fan also uses an electronic speed control. If it does then we have a common thread to follow.
Neither the LED lamps or a motor speed control have a sufficiently wide signal to obliterate all TV channel frequencies
because of the extremely wide range of signal frequencies AT THE RECEIVER. But a sufficiently strong signal at ANY frequency could "swamp" the booster and reduce the gain to a level where the TV can no longer recover the signal.
It will require removing the booster from the signal path and connect the antenna directly to the TV. If reception is possible then the booster is the culprit. No sense replacing it since they will all operate the same. An alternative is connect a set of rabbit ears to the TV.
If the TV still can not obtain signal then the TV is being over loaded.
This scenario explains the fan involvement but offers no solution to you.
As an additional data point, substituting an other TV might give more information.
In any case, a methodical, professional attempt at a remedy will be very costly. A well equipped RF technician could find the cause quickly but that doesn't equate to a solution acceptable to you.
Seems to me that your best bet is find an alternative to the LED reading lamps or turn them off as has been previously suggested..
