I have a squirrel cage with that problem. My neighbor has an HVAC business and told me those fans are designed to run with more air resistance (ductwork from a whole house). The fan pulls air from both sides, I screwed pegboard over one side to restrict the airflow. It slowed the fan and now the motor runs much cooler.
