EXTENSION CORD

Use only three-wire extension cords that have three-prong grounding-type plugs and three-pole receptacles that accept the
compressor's plug. Replace or repair damaged cord.
Make sure your extension cord is in good condition. When using an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to
carry the current your product will draw. An undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of power and
overheating. Table shows the correct size to use depending on cord length and name plate ampere rating. If in doubt, use
the next heavier gage. The smaller the gage number, the heavier the cord.
