Excessive heat developing in a machine is a warning that something is wrong. This might include poor meshing of gears, or poor lubrication of bearings. The heat is therefore a warning of impending failure of a greater level and as such, should be heeded. Identify the source of the heat and then investigate the underlying cause.
