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.

IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY SURE YOU CAN DO THIS JOB

SAFELY AND COMPETENTLY

REFER THIS WORK TO QUALIFIED PROFESSIONALS.

If you are asking whether you can connect a three-phase motor to a single-phase system, then the answer is no.

Single phase motor winding is often checked just by listening to the noise that the motor is making. An experienced person can tell if the motor is working at single phase or double phase.

No, you can not run a 3 phase induction motor on a single phase system.
