By returning all channels you have used back to inputs, you can avoid accidental damage to your RPi by s...

Use GPIO.setwarnings(False) to disable warnings.
Ok. Still the stepper motor isn't working, and that is what the code is supposed to do. Also, what does the warning mean?

It uses the following code to control it: import RPi.GPIO as GPIO import time G...
