I don's suppose you have any idea why it was in storage?

As you probably noticed, the motor can be wired to run in either direction on either 120 or 230V. The plug, if it has one, is a good indication of how it's set up, as far as voltage.

I suggest you take a look at the maintenance pages and check for oil in the pump, drain the tank (it should be dry, but you never know...)

Then plug it in and see what happens. If you have a problem and don't find your answer here, then use the comment on this post to get more specific help.

Good luck!
