RIP I accidently chose the 240v and I guess it's too late to change... that's 200 dollars down the drain

get an adapter to bring the 110 up to 240?

Check the internals, often changing the voltage is a simple jumper placement. Why design two different PCBs if you can do both on one for half the cost?

You would have to mod the chord most likely and run power from your breaker box for 240v. Not sure which countries 240v its wired for tho.... I would need to know that and investigate more. I know how to wire 240 in the us tho. I tried searching if there was any difference in the sound in the versions and couldnt find anything so figured compatibility was the only feature. There is no adapter to turn 110 into 240(you need 2 power lines instead of one) yeah also if you wire for 240v you have to test it and make it sure its not 220. I think most air conditioners run on 230 240v parts so every house has to have that kind of power. Even if it was 10v under it probably wouldnt hurt mutch. The DeFacto guide to wiring is made by Black and Decker(no joke research it) you can download the pdf all over online just search it. You better research what your doing tho. Everything electrical has easy fixes for it but you cant make any mistakes if you make mistakes things burn and explode; fry. Also read the entire Black and Decker guide and take all safe precautions you will also need tools and voltage checkers dont cut any corners and not get those(nor completely trust them either thats how you die) and deal shop everything online to save money. I would test wires with the no contact voltage checker(hot wire checker) then quickly touch the wires to be used quickly with a finger tip(never grip a wire unless your sure its off, the hot wire triggering your grip and holding on to hot wires is how you die otherwise its just a sharp shock, electricians are often trained to say ow thats sharp as to avoid legal concerns as over time you will get a shock eventually even if you do take all precautions). I fix my own ac and do my own house wiring and havent been shocked yet but I check everything first(except an ac capacitor discharge through a chasis but that doesnt really count cause capacitors are a temporary discharge and considered non-lethal wasnt a live line ground short).
