No. ANY burning smell is trouble!

I suspect the original motor terminal trouble is the problem source.

You will get a smell on new electronics. Not a burn smell just a smell.

I'm betting the epoxy post has morphed into a giant resistor.

Thumbs up Re: Please help me figure out why I'm melting v-glide

Not knowing what epoxy you used but if that terminal wrung off and you epoxyed it back you are lucky it runs at all. The terminal needs to be took back a part cleaned and replaced. Heat is a sign of bad connections in a electric source. The terminal has to be insulated from the motor casing are it will short out and burn up anything hooked to it in short time.

The big white washers are insulators for the motor. If one of them is gone it's shorting out.

I don't see those washers on mine. Do they burn off if a problem exists?
