for USA, Canada and countries running a 60 Hz power supply service.It is important that you should read see the answer to the Related Question shown below.
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.
