Hi,
If the current on each of the three phases is uneven, the polarity of the windings may
be incorrect? ..or you may have connected the motor in the delta configuration instead
of star (6 terminals on motor?)

wouldn't this cause tripping on start-up ?

Depends on what starter you were using!!;)

What is the KW rating of the motor??

Has it got DOL, Star/delta, soft starter, invertor etc for starting?

Is it squirrel cage, wound rotor, reaction etc etc

Some more details would be nice, take a look on the rating plate if you are not sure

I agree with what has been said already, sounds like motor is connected in delta. On a standard cage 400/230 3ph motor this means that 400v are across a 230 winding, on a small motor it will start up no problem in delta just it will over heat and eventually fail. Or you could be using a non standard winding like 380/200, really need more info from motor plate/start control.
