letsmakerobots - motor is not spinning
August 23, 2012
i have created the simple circuit using breadboard to blink led every 5 sec using microcontroller.
it works well and the led flashes out for 5 sec.
i want to use motor in the circuit.
but if i place the motor in place of led,the motor does not spin.
is the enough current not passing from microcontroller to motor or i have to use additional components like transistor/mosfets etc.
however if i connect the motor to 1.5 v cell battery separately,it spins well.
Can you help me what could be the reason the motor is not spinning ?
