First time trying to control a dc brushed motor with a N-Channel MOSFET.
I believe I understand how it should work but it just isn't and I am stuck as to what to test and fix or change.
I have a small Dc brushed motor(if i connect it directly to +5V power supply it works fine) that i connected to ma IRF1010N MOSFET as per the schematics. Arduino runs just blink code (but it also doesn't work if i manually connect gate to +5V)
I have tried running the motor on 12V(thinking the MOSFET was dropping the voltage too much) and it still doesn't work, but if i connect Gate to +12V for a while, it like "charges" and starts turning, but a 1 sec pulse from arduino doesn't turn it on.
What am I missing? the motor alone works, MOSFET with LED works it just when I try connecting the motor in place of the LED it doesn't work? What can i try what can I test?
