Response to Hi Joe, you wouldn't happen to have the motor information from the motor you replaced? By chance you could have replaced a 1 HP full rate motor with a 1 HP uprate motor which would have overworked the new motor. I would suggest going with the 1.5 HP replacement as the motor will be under less stress and should last longer.
