Most 220 volt compressor motors have three wires..a red, a black , and a green. The red and the back are both hot (110 each) and the green is the ground. If your motor just has two 14 guage wires a white and a black, I would think it was a 110 instead of a 220. In any event you need to check and make sure before you try to hook it up.
