Les. I looked at the schematic and DO NOT WIRE OR HOOKUP TO 220 Volts. All 
the control relays ect are wired in a 110 Volt setup. It's a old relay logic 
circuit and would require a lot of parts and rewire changes.  A lot of 
weatherproof motors are duel voltage. If you have a straight run from the 
circuit panel have your electrician rewire it back to a 110 Volts setup and 
you are good to go. 73 Gene K2QWD
