Can this air compressor be saved?

Bogleheads • View forum - Personal Consumer Issues - www.bogleheads.org
I unwisely connected my air compressor to what turned out to be an undersized 100-foot extension cord in order to power an air tool in a remote corner of our yard. The connection was as follows:

normal 15-amp outlet (non-GFCI)

|

25-foot heavy-duty extension cord usually used with the compressor

|

100-foot medium-duty extension cord NOT usually used with the compressor

|

compressor

The compressor ran especially slowly, and I shut it off after about 30 seconds. The connection between the two extension cords, especially on the medium-duty cord, became hot and a bit melted and charred, then the circuit breaker blew. Since then, I used the compressor once, without the medium-duty cord. The connection between the heavy-duty cord and the compressor began smoking. I am trying to figure out whether the compressor is damaged, or whether it's just the heavy-duty cord (which appears fine). Any ideas on how to check this out?

Thanks
