Hello all. Hope all is well.
I am learning about stepper motors and I am running a stepper motor with a regular amazon.com motor driver and an Arduino.
When I hold the shaft of the motor while it is rotating, it stops rotating and makes a high pitch whining sound till I turn off the power. ( The stepper doesnt go back to rotating when I left go the shaft.)
These are my questions for you guys:
Is the motor showing symptoms of stalling? Is this what stalling is?
Is there something that I can do in my Arduino code to help the motor go back to rotating when I let go the shaft? ( Maybe increase steps or decrease steps? )
Is the motor trying to step way too fast?
Thank you for your replies!
