It sounds like it still doesn't have a good connection. If there isn't enough surface area to pass the amount of current it's trying to pass, it's going to get HOTT. Check your surfaces again and make sure everything is 100% clean and that the surfaces are mating up completely

That wire goes to the batteries. You may want to clean the connections on the batteries.
