cental vac wiring


I have used phone wire for the low voltage...after a short running time the relay shuts off...is it heating up because the wire is too small a gauge. I connected the terminals for 24 V wire directly and it seems to run ok......but maybe it just did not run long enough...I did this connection after it had shut off via the telephone wire,,, and it shut off also...may be it was already heated. I thought telephone wire was rated for around 50 V DC??? Rewiring will be a nightmare any suggestions
