Thanks for the quick response! Sorry, I should have been a little clearer in my original post. This is what I’m hoping to do:

From the 110V DC Motor:
-Black “Hot Line”: Tap into 110V leg of 220V line
-White “Neutral Line”: Cap it – Not plugged into anything
-Green “Ground Line”: Splice into proper Ground

I was wondering if the DC motor will run with just a single 110V Hot (Black wire) and a ground with no neutral hooked up.
