Just an update on this, I got the new motor and it runs WAY stronger. The replacement was a Siemens PM9001. I put the fan back together, let it run for 10 mins and wires didnt heat up at all. It was obvious that the old motor was going out, probably why it was sold. Anyone looking to replace their taurus fan motor should look into these units, $70 with lifetime warranty. Ebay has some guy selling the entire fan with original motor for about $100 shipped. You can get a junk fan like I did for less than $30, buy the new motor for $70 and you have a $100 fan setup with a lifetime warranty, seems like a good deal to me.
