Default Machine Heating issue

Hey guys Im a self taught artist. I recently just bought a new set of machines. Payed quite a bit for them. Im not going to say what brands so I rule out the personal negatives of the actual brand.

Any way i WILL say that I am using a finely adjustable LCD power source. I use both 8 coil and 11 coil, My 8 coil as a liner never over heats, works sounds smooth as hell,

Yet, my 11 coil I shade and color with SOUNDS amazing, put ink in like crazy ect. except. It over heats. Now I could go by my CPS Hz FT ect ect but I have learned to go by the sound of the machine and depth of the throw.

Does anyone know why I am overheating? It will get to the point where I have to tap my machine to get it to start dancing.

I am kind of new to the 11 wrap coils. Do they just run hot?

Thanks for your info guys.

i have never even heard of 11 wrap coils, i would get a different machine. 8 wraps is plenty. and yes the more wraps you have the more its going to heat up, because you have more magnet, or more wire on the coil to energize, which is also why more wraps use more volts. if it runs good for you than f@#k it man. hope that helps.............ps post pics of your work in the post your work section
