we had an unbalanced load and then it started to act this way. Theres no other fix? Is that the cause "over worked" or is it a standar failure with this type,model etc?

I believe the unbalanced load was the "straw that broke the camel's back," so to speak, but not the entire reason for failure. It was probably having issues that have gone unnoticed and this is how it has presented. This is not an uncommon failure. Replacing the motor will correct the problem, though.
