QUESTION: model no.  EB23B   serial no.W0H5770901  could  the blower motor be burned  out already

Answer
Hello Jason, How long ago did you change out the motor? Was a new capacitor installed? Check the top of the capacitor and see if it is popped up. If it is, it needs to be replaced.

I see you are in Texas, so I assume the stat is in A/C mode. When the fan is running and won't shut off, remove the stat. If the fan keeps running the fan relay is bad. If it shuts down the stat is bad.

Let me know what happens.
