Motors often have a diagram on the side. If it has a diagram, it may
show how to wire the motor for 110 AC or 220 AC. It will show a note
that says "to reverse motor, reverse black and blue wires" or other colors
depending on the manufacturer. Clean off the side of the motor and see
if you can find any kind of diagram. If it has no diagram, then I don't know
what to tell you. Smaller cheap motors like a muffin-fan motor does not have
any method of reversing that i know of.
