I have an extension lead from the main socket in my home office. Attached is a fridge (drinks fridge but not a mini fridge - 80L). Then I have another extension attached to that one that contains all of my computer set up (2 monitors, Mac charger, PS4 and a light).
When ever the compressor for the fridge starts up, one of my monitors loses power for a second and then comes back on. Same happens when the compressor of the fridge shuts off. It used to happen on the other monitor, but now happens on this one leading me to believe that it's a certain plug in the extension that has the issue since I recently moved things around.
Is this something to worry about? Is this a surge that is causing my monitor to lose power?
I've had nothing but issues with the fridge since I got it. It's very loud when the compressor is on and when it turns off, it makes quite the sound (not a bang, but a loud click and rumble).
At the time of writing, the monitor didn't actually come back on. However it did come back on manually. But this time, the signal was lost. Replugging the display port back in to the mac solved this issue.
This has only been happening for the past month or so (fridge is ~4 months old)
This is the second fridge, the first had to be sent back and replaced as it was far too loud and must have had an issue
The internal light stopped working after about 2 weeks
