    If a 12v motor runs on 6v what harm will come to the motor? Thanks for your interest.

    No, but you will, most likely, be operating at a lower efficiency...

    The power to the motor might be too low for it to start turning then it might sit there stalled without turning (which cools it) then it might burn out.
