type of on/ off switches?
hello! today i have made my mini dc motor 12 v operating table saw using a power jack and rocker on/off switch 6A and 250VA. When i power the dc motor i suddenly saw that my power adapter is adjusted on 18v but i instantly switch off the motor after some seconds. Later on i adjusted my adapter power on 12v and again power the motor but after 30 seconds my motor is not working. When i try to on/off my power button i assumed that it has been loose which means it has burnt, remaining all connections are ok but motor is heated and rocker power on/off switch is also heated. Please let me know why this happened?
More so, did i operate a 12v dc motor with 18v current?
