    Got resistance somewhere. In a connection or motor. Heat is an indicator of excessive resistance. I would replace the cord with a heavier one 1st and go from there.

    I agree friction or bad wire or plug in contact. Been itís old maybe brushes are also warmed that will certainly cause heat.

    It is a squirrel cage fan? What is it off of? All of those I have seen like to be restricted. Other wise they won't spin fast enough, not only being less efficient, but also creating more load. If a power cord doesn't get it, I would check that.
    I may have been born at night, but it wasn't last night.

    Yea, I am sure they are to a point. I still have an OLD table fan made by Hunter. Pretty sure it will out last me as I inherited it from my grandmother.
