Fog machine issue

Hello,
I am in desperate need of help. I have 2 VF400 fog machines. No matter how I plug them in, (different circuits, power conditioners etc) whenever the button is pressed or released it causes a pop in our PA system and causes the audio in our In Ear Monitoring system to drop out and and come back in. How can this be fixed?

Yeah I have seen that this has what alot of people are being told however this happens at every venue we play. So to make sure it wasnt an electrical problem I did a test in our band house. I had our electrician check everything in our band house to make sure everything was wired correctly and there were no floating or looping grounds and all polarity was correct. We only have a hundred amp service in the band house but the only thing I had running in our practice house during the test is 6 regular lights with energy saving bulbs 200Ma each for a total of 1.2 amps, a digital console 5 amps, and our P16M personal mixer 2 amps. No Instrument or power amps of any kind. Thats only 8.2 amps of pull from one 20 amp breaker on 100 amp service. So I know that I wasnt pulling no where near even 15 amps with everything I had on minus the fog machines. The fog machines were plugged into an outlet on a totally different 20 amp breaker I played music off of a thumb drive plugged directly into the console and put in my Earbuds, hit the button for the fog and the audio went out and faded back in, so Im not getting where its an electrical problem, it just doesnt make sense.
