Overload protection is a euphemism for too much electricity going into the motor. That can only be caused by two things - 1 - the motor is not turning freely because of some restriction in the drive mechanism or 2 - some of the motor windings have shorted out and now the motor windings have less resistance than before and more electricity is entering and less back emf is being generated.
Condition 1 is repairable 2 - fogetit - motor is shot.
It sounds like your lamp may need replacing. Before you go that route try all of these:
-Make sure the lamp cover on the bottom is fully attached.
-If you unplug the power cord while the fan is rotating, the lamp may not turn on about 1 minute when
you plug the power cord next time. After the status indicator stops blinking press the power button to turn it back on. May have to press it multiple times.
-If your Power Light continues to blink red/green then you should contact your dealer.
Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
The nailer’s electrical system has gone into overload protection. There
may be something wrong with the fan motor or the wires going to the fan
motor. Remove the cap and grill to inspect the red and black fan motor
wires. If the wires are pinched or broken, that may be the problem. It
may also help to disconnect the small white connector on the wire
assembly that goes to the motor and then reconnect it.
