I'm just setting up two Antminer s9's and the power cable to the power supply is getting warm.

Is this normal?

Or do I not have sufficient amps on the house  current?

I'm worried so I turned them off.

I've got 220 and using a 2000w capacity power stick. The cable from the house to the power stick is getting a tiny bit warm.

I think I got it figured, the gauge of the wire for the power supply must be too small.
Need to get larger gauge wire. Or rather smaller gauge.

Larger gauge = lower number...  Correct.
