Hi do you know if ELC is a reputable brand?Myasis Dragon wrote: ↑Fri, 15 Oct 2021 1:52 amYes, you need a step down transformer that is at least 1380 watts. In actuality, you'll want a reserve built in, so at least 1500 watts, preferably closer to 1800 watts.
Stay away from cheap Chinese crap. Seriously. Crappy transformers, wiring that's not heavy enough, improperly insulated. You need to buy a transformer that has been approved by Spring or whatever agency in Singapore now tests and approves electronic devices. Sim Lim Tower has shops that sell this kind of stuff.
Stay away from devices marked as "auto transformers". They work but do not give you any isolation protection from the hot mains, and auto transformers exist primarily because they are cheaper to make.
Expect to pay around $150 and up to get what you need in a quality product. And it will be a bit of a box.
This is an example of what I am talking about.

One other thing. You are running an electric motor. US power is 60 Hz, Singapore power is 50 Hz. Expect your appliance to run a bit slower.
