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
