And all because they didn't pre-twist...This is what happens when someone hooks up a motor to 208 volts and wires it for 460 volts with the overload relay set too high even for the 208 volt connection.
Replaced this motor today. Apparently it was installed about 2 months ago and was running for about 1.5 months before it stopped working.
