The motor has a nameplate on it somewhere that gives the motor specifications and voltage or voltages....looks like this....

thats the problem, there is no label.
i just bought the machine on auction and i do not know if the machine is 110 or 220, maybe it is 3 phase who knows.

Ok hopefully it is the right one...... can you tell from this chart which one matches the plug ...?? The P and the diagrams that have the solid black are the plugs.... R is the matching receptacle.
