Yes. You might have too much on that circuit. I would try a different outlet on a different circuit and see what happens. And you can confirm by using a lamp with incandescent bulb on the outlet you keep tripping without the extension cord than try with extension cord. It may even be possible the issue is the cord.Source(s): 14 years electrician

I doubt it, But, something is causing it to overload, or it may be faulty

It's possible, but an air conditioner, refrigerator, or heater is more likely to draw considerable current than a fan is unless the fan is faulty.

Try it without the extension cord. If it works well, then the cord was the problem
