For sure if it is between the power source and your laptop power cord. Sometimes it is better to use a small UPS or a power source box kind of thing to make sure your laptop won't get compromised by any slight voltage variation.

    I have model Husky WL651004AJ it will not run at all. I want to remove the top cover to check the electrics. I can get the cover off. The snaps come loose, that's as far as I can get. How do you remov

    I have a Husky WL651004AJ which has not been starting up for family members lately and noticed a 50 ft extension cord was being used because of the distance from the power outlet. I moved the air compressor to the power outlet and plugged in the power cord without any other extension cord and the air compressor works fine. The 50 ft cord was too light duty for the power required.
    (12 ga) and min gage of 10 for the distance of 50 ft without disrupting the power breakers.

    Coleman Mach 3 ac unit tries to start compressor & kicks off

    50 foot extention cord not a problem IF it is at least 10 gauge and plugged in to a 20 amp circuit

    Your compressor is shutting down for a lack of AC voltage would be my best guess

    GFCI cord not long enough

    Standard extention cords are made for light draw applications like lamps and T.V.s. They are not heavy enough for the power that your A/C will draw. You can get an appliance extention cord that is made to handle heavier load such as you A/C. Most hareware stores carry them.

    GFCI Trips After an Hour

    It is possible that the extention cord is the problem. Over time wires will heat voltage will drop. Along with the added distance on the code the voltage drop cause a drain and trips the GFCI. Try replacing GFCI and also try opperating without the extension cord.
