can this unit be rewired to run on 230 volts?
I purchased this unit from you last year and would like to now run it on 230 volts rather than 115. Can this unit be rewired to operate on 230 volts?

Rewiring this Ingersoll Rand Garage Mate Air Compressor would void your warranty and is not recommended.

No it can not. The motor was not designed to run both. Units that are designed to run both are actualy 230 volts motors that are not heavy so 115 will turn it. If you run it off a 230 you will burn it out because the wiring inside the motor is not designed to handle than much power.

I had same question. According to name plate/spec. plate on my unit the motor is 120 volt only.
