Oscillating Fan Turns On By Itself?

I walked into the bedroom and my oscillating fan turned on by itself when it was totally in the off position, turned back off by itself, and then turned back on. I unplugged the fan and puzzled as why the fan did this. Could it be a problem with the outlet or a power surge?

It is possible that your remote for the fan is hidden and is touching something around it. Check when it turns on or off. You may be sitting on it.

This just happened to me. I fell asleep after turning mine off and when I woke up just now it was on. I dont remember waking up to turn it back on (which means I was dead asleep) and no one can enter my room. It's not remote operated, you've got to turn a knob in order to set it/turn it on and off

I probably sound crazy, but I know I took it off, it was way to cold and I always remember turning it back on
