My problem is: brand new 2 hp 208 230 3 phase motor is drawing 7.1 amps under load 4.1 amps under no load. Data plate says it should be drawing 6.1 amps. Our service is 240 Delta. Will drawing 7 amps cause an early demise to the new motor? It is powering an air compresssor which was powered by 2hp motor originally. Motor starts ok and seems to run ok. It has only been run for 6min or less a few times.
