A) Why did you leave it in the sun for 3 hours and then connect the motor? Solar panels do not charge up or anything like that. You need to connect the motor to the solar cell and leave it in the sun. It should instantly work or not work.

B) What is the voltage rating of the DC motor you connected? It may be more than 3V.


okk thanks friend. it was a toy motor but now i think i should use pager motor first and then use dc motor.
