Does anybody know why a martinot listed as 110 volt runs very slow at 110 but runs great at 220.  Could this be harmful over time?

For now I will post on both old and new forum

Jim, this is rather primitive Pete of me, but after it runs for a short while on 220 put your hand on the motor, if it starts getting roasty, not good, if it is warm, run it longer and if it just gets warm, what are you going to harm?
