I have an issue with a ten horse single phase Baldor. I know Baldors run hot, but this one gets really hot. I checked the stationary switch and governor and both are fine. It pulls 28 amps no load and is rated 40 amps. That is high for no load amps. The start caps were replaced and one blew in seconds. There is a contactor as well as the switch. It pulls in and releases but i cleaned the contacts anyway. Anyone had this problem? I need to check that there is a wavy washer because the only thing I can think of is that the rotor isnt lining up with the stator. That could cause high amps.. No wires are bad, the bearings are fine.
