Of course it cannot work. A stepper motor needs a stepper controller.

Stepper motor is a kind of motor that rotates in steps according to input pulses. For example, imagine a motor that has for example 360 clicks per a full rotation. If you send 360 pulses, it will make a full 360 degrees rotation. There are several motors with more or less accuracy but the principal is the same

like what would you like to make? There are ready made controllers, not too expensive, but you could also make one. But you should have some microcontroller knowledge...

Is it for educational reasons. Just to make it work. I found the motor really cheap and bought it. Is it possible that i have destroy it connected to the transformer?
