when from 5v its get very hot..any suggestions???

1) Buy a new one as you will probably have fried that one. 2) Use a voltage regulator to reduce the 5V to 3V3. Don't forget the capacitors.

An LD1117 voltage regulator should be suitable.

Hi, Strongly suggest a separate regulator and bypass capacitors.

THIS MODULE really works for many people...
