    i purchased a heath/zenith wireless doorbell chime kit (model # SL-6147-WH) that runs off of (2) 1.5 volt batteres, which produces 3V through the doorbell. i then detached the speaker, and am trying to use the doorbell to power a 3V DC motor. (range 1.5-3V). the volts running through the wires where the speaker was soldered is about 3.1V. the motor works because i've tested it with 1.5V and 3V. also, when i depress the push button for the doorbell and the motor is connected, i can hear the vibrations of the 'chime' through the motor. the problem is that the motor is not turning when i depress the button. i wondered if maybe the signal being driven to the motor is sound signal only? are there resistors that need to be taken out? or maybe a transistor? im just starting to learn about electricity, so i definitely need help.
