Perhaps an S1 could be used to replace an S4, being mindful that an S1 is rated for Continuous Duty at which thermal equilibrium is attained

However, you have provided no information about the mechanical load applied to the motor shaft OR any information about the duty cycle of your application.

There's a 99% certainty that you could not use an S4 to replace an S1 since an S1 is rated for continuous duty and an S4 is rated for intermittent duty with a power-off rest period between cycles.
