    G'day guys,
    i'm new and need some help .
    1.I brought a a electric sander with a brushless ac motor from the U.S it has a rating of 115V 60 Hz 10 amps.
    I'm told by other owners of this machine that it has burn out circuit boards.Why ?they don't know.pic of machine power supply here in Aus is 240V/50 Hz.

    I was going to buy a vfd to change the aust supply to the machine spec's
    the vfd i was thinking of is this

    after writing this question it has occured to me that maybe the circuit board in the machine is type of vfd?
    Can someone please help me?
