Converting a 220 into a 110

I went to change a 220 to a 110 and noticed the wires difference.
When I opened the 220 the wires were RED BLUE & GREEN. Now I'm almost sure for the 110 a WHITE wire is necessary. Can I use these 3 wires or do I change them. If I can use them then how?
Thanks for the help.

You can remark the blue wire white at each end (or pull it out and put in a white wire). You'll have to move it to the neutral bar at the panel. And you'll almost certainly need to downsize the breaker.

Thumbs down

Oh boy, Do not try this at home. It blew the fuse and destroyed the breaker automatically. The best thing to do is is CHANGE the BLUE wire for a White wire and definitely DOWNSIZE your BREAKER.

Thanks for the Help!
