ARef should have a capacitor across it. It should not be connected to +5V.

ok, it works.....

the only thing i done is to connect ARef with +5V.

somewhere i read that without a connection to ARef
the Atmega uses a 1.1V Ref.Voltage.
Maybe this is why my poti smokes if i use it with 5V.

plz read my post nr. #4.

iam on a breadboard where ARef was not connected

Do you know what you have or are you changing things and not saying until later?
