I am having a problem with the circuit below.
I am trying to use the IRLR8726TRPBF to switch a 24V pump by turning the Gate HIGH and LOW using the Arduino. However, there when I connect power to the board, there is a short between the Gate and the Source of the MOSFET.
Before I noticed the short, I would turn the Gate HIGH and the MOSFET would get really hot quite fast. And it would switch an LED but for long, then it would go off.
What am I doing wrong? Any suggestions on how to solve the problem? Thank you.
