Maybe one is just doing much more work or they are different sizes.

actually without load he is pulling more current and we just rewind it and fix it and its same size same company manufacturer thanks for help
 
Are they on the same or separate mixers. One has been re wound but the other not?
 
Swap the motors. See if you get the same result.

I'm sorry to harp on Mate, but what is the reference to Star\delta all about? it may be me I get something stuck in my brain that wont let go.
Method of starting I presume.

Common in all of the concrete plants I worked at for their mixers. Until we started upgrading to VSD control.

Agree, bot the OPs fault his English is a bit confusing wonder what I sould be like speaking his spoken word, did a good job I thought, just got myself all tied up, must be an age thing on my part.

My guess, if the winding's test out ok and are balanced. (Test from the starter cabinet first, you'll find cable faults too that way). Then it will be mechanical failure, likely a bearing on the mixer itself or in the motor.

Quick check, disconnect the motor and run it without a load, check the current is equal an within a sensible range on each phase.
