220 Pump motor to 110 machine

Postby Phil Proteau on Thu May 15, 2008 3:24 pm

I have a 220 motor with rotary pump for a commercial espresso machine and a 110 pro-sumer machine with vibration pump. Does anyone know how I can marry the two, or is this a square peg in a round hole?

I expect I will just have to buy a 110 motor, but if there is a way to make the two work together I would love to save the money.

You would have to power it on a separate 220v circuit. I wouldn't even want to try to mate a transformer to the combination. One that could handle that kind of juice would cost as much as a 110v pump or more.

Frankly, I think you'd be better off selling the 220v pump and buying a 110v pump.

Double check to see if the motor is dual voltage. Some motors have jumper wires inside which can set it for 220v or 110v.

It only has the 220 setting and can not be switched to 110. Since the pump is activated by and powered from the machine I think it just won't work.

I think the best thing is to liquidate the asset and re-invest in a 110 motor. This is what I suspected from the start, but thought I would check just in case someone had some hidden magic.

Thanks guys.

It's still possible, but like I said.. not on the same circuit.
