I have just experienced the same issue with a fuel pump relay in 33C temperatures and after several hours running - rapid clicking and relay getting very hot. Pump maintained enough pressure for the motor to run OK. In my case the clicking was it cycling on & off. Relay appeared to be seated properly but cleaning and splaying out the pins fixed it. I assume that the pin sockets expand more than the pins themselves and cause a poor connection. Not sure if the cut-off relay has spades or pins but worth trying.
