    Hi there!

    I am using the IG32 12vDC 043RPM motor (http://www.superdroidrobots.com/shop/item.aspx/ig32-right-angle-12vdc-043-rpm-gear-motor/1386/) to rotate a series of objects.

    I am currently powering it directly from the mains with a 12V DC power supply but what I find is that the motor emits this odd smell (as if the motor is burning) within 5-10 minutes of running.

    I was wondering what I might do to avoid this? Ideally I would like the motor running constantly for months on end.

    Thank you!

    Use a larger motor… Sorry, kinda obvious. If it smells like its burning up, its burning up… overloaded. if you are getting it in 10 minutes, doubtful you will make it constantly for months. Non of the motors we sell are really rated continuous duty any ways… continuous duty is a very demanding requirement even with no load.
