    You made great instructions to kill your Arduino. You cannot drive a motor directly from arduino pins. When you stop the motor the returning current can kill your Arduino pin. In adition the motor drive from the arduino pin don't have almost power to do any real job work. It's better use and h-bridge and external power for the motor.

    Hey friend, that is not a motor. Please read and watch my video clearly. That is fan not a motor. And we are using relay on that so we no need to use h-bridge and our Arduino never kills. So must you need to watch it in video. What is use of relay?

    The schematic shows a motor, and that wasn't the first schematich that I with a motor directly conected to an Arduino. Sorry, I start to read from my mobile and I din't read the text.

    I thonk that it's better to draw a relay and then that anybody attatch to the relay the charge of their preference.

    Thanks for your instructable and sorry.
