Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

Any time you have wires heating up it can be caused by an excessive draw and or a ground circuit. I would go back and recheck all the wiring routeing looking for any possible short to ground. If the wiring looks okay then try unplugging everything on the circuit one thing at a time and see if the problem occur which should help you isolate.
