Default servos getting hot

I am setting up a new radio system reciever is a jr 921 and the two servos that are giving trouble are both hitecs one is a hs 81 on a gear door sequencer. There are two servos on this sequencer both hs 81s the oneforthe doors gets hot but the one for the gear is fine I have made sure that it is not over stroked even replaced it with another new one it also got hot.
Now later on in the set up i started to work on the flap servos they are hs5645mg and it is hooked up with a y harness and one servo is fine and the other gets hot. Again I replaced the servo with another new one and it gets hot also
I have never had these problems before and not sure what to do about it.
Any help is appriciated

P.s all of this equipment is new

Default RE: servos getting hot

It's not uncommon for servos to get warm with usage but it sounds like something else may be going on. I would test the servos plugged directly into the RX without the sequencers or y harness to see if that makes any difference.
