damper motor question

My question is this safe? Can I leave them and get used to the noise? Are they just going to burn out in a month or worse literally catch fire or something?
Should I call my hvac guy to swap them out for the ewc motors mentioned in this post right away or is it safe to sit on the issue for a while?
I started a new thread for you.
Most residential damper motors are power closed, spring open. So they should be de energized in the open position, and not make any noise. Panel may not be set up right.
