Asked in Modification of Old Electrical WorkElectrical Wiring
What will happen if you connect two 110 volt wires together and connect it to a 220 volt motor?

On a three wire supply system if you connect the two 110V wires together and they are across the phase they will short out and trip the breaker. If the two 110V wires are supplied from across the phase and connected to a motor then the motor will run. If the 110V wires are on the same phase nothing will happen.
