Hey Mackenzie, this is what iFixit suggests you to do if your grinder is overheating:

Grinder getting unusually hot while in use

When the grinder becomes hot and can’t be handled properly.

Use of grinder for long periods of time

While the grinder is in use a certain amount heat will be produced although if the grinder becomes too hot that it unpleasant to handle, you must stop shut off the grinder and allow it to cool off for some time and recheck to see if it has cooled off completely before reuse.

Build up of debris and rust

When an excessive amount of debris and rust build up, it can cause the grinder wheel to be clogged and overheat. In order to solve this issue you can refer to the Accumulation of Debris above section (I copy-pasted the section below).

Accumulation of Debris

From use debris can be cause of low resolution when air particles get inside of the grinder. In order to resolve this issue you will have to clean the moving components of the grinder and add a little lubrication oil to keep it moving.
