It won't run, there is insufficient start up voltage. It's all in the way the windings in the motor are connected. Since I'm an electrician, I just haven't done this because I always do something to make it right i.e. change the input voltage or change the connections of the motor windings. I would suspect the most it would do is buzz. Just a guess.
If in doubt, consult a qualified electrician to have it rewired if it's dual voltage or change the power source to accommodate your motor.

As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed.
Before you do any work yourself,
on electrical circuits, equipment or appliances,
always use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.

Thanks for the feedback!

Can you plug a 230 volt appliance into a 250 volt outlet?

Yes. The electricity in your home is nominally 240 volts or 120 volts to ground on each hot leg in a 240 volt system. Appliances are sometimes designated 220v, 230v, 240v, how

Can you plug a 110 volt appliance into 120 volt outlet?

For simplicity's sake:   110 volts, 115 volts, 120 volts, 125 volts - all the same thing

What happens if you plug a 230 volt appliance into a 220 volt outlet?

Nothing spectacular, it's about 5% off the recommended voltage, and they'll run just fine on that.   The voltages 220 to 240 volts are a nominal figure in the same voltage

Can you plug a 115 volt appliance in a 110 volt outlet?

Yes, the voltages are part of the nominal voltage of 120 volts.

Can you plug a 115 volt device into a 110 volt outlet?

There is no problem with that voltage. As long as the voltage is plus or minus 5% of the nominal voltage of 115 volts it is considered to be in the 120 volt range. Even though

How can you run a 200 volt 3 phase motor on 230 volts single phase?

You can not run a three phase motor on single phase Source. You can use a VFD (variable frequency drive) or a rotary phase converter to supply your three phase motor from a si

What is 230 volt single phase?

for USA, Canada and other countries running a 60 Hz supply service. 230 volt single phase refers to the two hot wires in standard house wiring but with the absence of the com

What happens if you plug a 110 volt PC to a 220 volt outlet will it damage everything?

Yes you could damage the computer. Most likely you would fry the  power supply. Some computers have a switch on the back to switch  between 110 volts and 220 volts.
