Thank you for your question on the smoke coming from the plug connection.

The usual cause of for this happening is the plug prongs are not making a tight connection with the extension cord contacts.

If you separate the cords and examine the plug you may see some blacking from the arcing contacts.

You may have to either clean the contacts and separate them or change the extension cord with one that has better contacts.

Please let me know what you find out.
