#186837 - 555 Timer for AC
Hello...
I'm trying to make a timer for switching on and off a small microwave motor.
This motor will just rotate a mirrored globe (for parties) all night long, as the motor heats quite much I thought in build a simple timer just to make the motor have some time to cool down, these times are not critical, I thought in something like 1~3 minutes on and 30s~1 minute off... kind 70% duty.

I have adapted a circuit I got in the internet, built it but it is not working as I expected, the motor never turns off, can someone give a help?
Thanks.

Follows the exact schematic:
