What you had done, was the obvious solution. If the issue has been going on longer than 24 hours, then I would become concerned.
The possibilities that the issue remains after 24 hours is 1. was the replacement motor the correct one for your machine. They do interchange but are rated at different wattage's and speed, and need the proper blade attached ?? 2. Was the condenser coil cleaned at the time of repair. Next to a failed motor, dirt in the condenser coil is one of the prime causes for your issue ?? 3. If there are backing covers either metal or cardboard (see my tips section) were they reinstalled properly. They are critical on many models to properly duct the are across the condenser and compressor to properly cool them ??
Lastly, is the machine itself cooling properly, or if just recently restarted starting to cool down normally.
If there is an issue with no or poor cooling, then the hot mullion heater will be one of the effects.
Once again, if the time frame is under 24 hours, and cooling seems to be approaching normal, I would wait it out. Eventually the machine starts shutting off and on, reducing the heat problem your describing.
