My wires also overheated, on both sides of the bullet connectors. The insulation hardened, and one of the connectors simply broke off. I removed the connectors, and soldered the wires together. I have checked them several times after that, and can find no signs of overheating. My theory is that poor contact at the bullet connectors caused very high resistance, which is what overheated the wires. They were nowhere near any other source of heat. Jerry.
