120 to 240 switch

That's odd. Everywhere I look, that's a plain 120V motor.

However, if it indicates 240 on it, then it may be possible to wire your unit for 240. You could probably even add a switch to do it if you need that function.

If it's not shown on the plate where you see 240V reference, then usually there will be a diagram of how to connect the wires under the cover plate where the wires enter the motor.

Take a look. Good luck.
