I am working on my cauldron creep and the wiper motor is too fast. I purchased a speed regulator and with it spliced into the computer charger I get no movement at any setting. The normal output of the charger is 5 V. The regulator is spliced in between the transformer and the motor.

Any suggestions? Maybe a bad regulator?

5 volts is pretty low to begin with. Have you tried running the 5 volts directly into the motor first to see if the motor even turns at all? With only 5 volts as the input to the controller, you may not even have enough juice to get the controller working, never mind the motor.
The motor works great with the 5v supply - just too fast.
