Without Input, ADF5001 Output an Sine Wave

When there's no input or input is grounded, Eval-ADF5001 Board outputs a sine wave, frequency 5GHz, Peak-Peak Magnitude 400mV. It confuses me and this noise signal severely disturbs my input signal. How to remove this noise signal an where it originates from? I'm wondering about self-oscillating, but don't know how it works on this board. Thank you!
