Did you try reducing the current setting for the Kysan axis in configuration.h?

One more thing. If it's the extruder motor, I reduced the current setting to 110 so that it now runs quite cool. If it's one of the X, Y or Z motors, then the current setting stated in the comments in the configuration header file seems to work, I just can't recall what the value was right now - I think about 140 or so.
