I just picked this up curbside as a 18,000 btu with a 110 plug? Apparently the original breaker plug failed like they tend to sometimes or they changed it to fit a 110 outlet. Is this even fesable or could trying to use it like this cause a problem?

The label says 230 /60hz. Maybe someone twisted the prongs of the plug?

It needs to be connected to the proper voltage.

You'll either have to change the cord again or just put the appropriate plug onto it.

It might have drawn excessive amperage and blew the fuse? It might not have damaged any internal components... hopefully.

Ok, thanks Dan. I'll keep that in mind when I change to the correct plug. Can it even be tested using 110?

I don't think they realized it was a 230V unit. I've seen it happen before. One just twisted the prongs of the plug.
