TBH, not being able to touch the motor is about 70 degrees, so top end of normal range. Really need something more accurate than that, i use an IR thermometer.

Best not resorting to a fan until you've got it at least moderately under control or when the fan jams/breaks/falls out, you'll fry everything.

i.e. use the fan to get it from 70-50 rather than thermal shut down to not thermal shut down.
