Difference between 50Hz and 60Hz
Operating 60Hz appliances at 50Hz or vice versa may result in excessive heat buildup in transformers or in certain types of electric motors. If you wish to safely operate 115V 60Hz appliances at 115V 50Hz then the following steps can be attempted: Contact the manufacturer of the appliance. It may be possible to safely operate at 50Hz with the manufacturer's approval. See if an alternate 240V 50Hz or 115V 50Hz power supply or electrical motor is available. Some manufacturers sell the same appliance or electric tool in many countries around the world and may be able to retrofit the power supply or electrical motor to 240V 50Hz. Some regions of Japan have 100V 50Hz supplies while others have 100V 60Hz supplies so it is not uncommon for Japanese manufactured electrical devices to have 50Hz solutions. It is possible to purchase 60Hz sine wave power systems that take 240V 50Hz on input and produce 115V 60Hz on output. These solutions are generally very expensive, and it is usually more cost effective just to replace the tool or appliance. See here for a high current frequency conversion solution. If these solutions, for one reason or another, do not work then there are only two further choices: dispose of the appliance or tool, or attempt to operate the appliance or tool at 50Hz and in the process potentially create a situation where the power supply or the motors in the appliance or tool are rendered non-operational.
