    Sort-of.

    The balance under load is actually what you want. You want it to BE balanced, of course.

    The other option is to apply low voltage DC to the windings and bake it out from internal heat. Start low, and work up, watching the temperature (no cooling with it not spinning).

    A few shorted lams generally should not slow the motor. They do not mess up the magnetic field that much. And I doubt they got shorted.

    Running slow is reason enough for heating. And that...
