    What oil do you have in it and do you have any way to know if it got real hot?

    Thanks for replying mapleflats, I worked on it yesterday and it turns out that it somehow started turning backwards????? How does that even happen?

    There should be a tag showing the wiring schematic to indicate which wires to connect for proper rotation. Are you sure the power supply didn't get wired backwards? It's possible the wires got crossed on the supply which might have created the problem.
