How do I rewind 220 volt transformers and motors for 110 VAC? Answered

I have some devices from overseas that are 220 vac and would like to rewind them for use with 110 vac. In the Philippines, where we were they repair, rewind and recycle nearly everything.


. Not a job for all but the most advanced DIYers. You will be better off using a 2:1 transformer to supply to devices with 220. . Some motors, especially larger ones, can be reconfigured for different voltages by changing the arrangement of the input leads. If you have more than three leads, check for a data plate with diagrams.

. And some transformers, once again, usually the larger ones, can be reconfig'd, also.
