    Have you Checked your TESP

    Next is contact the factory, that is one strange symptom!

    120 volt in a furnace, or 230 volt in an air handler.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    What kind of unit is this in? Just throwing a dart here but Is it possible your gas valve is not shutting off properly causing residual heat issues that is triggering the fan switch? I guess what I'm getting at is, what else have you checked? I ask because that's an odd way for a motor to behave on its own.

    Pretty much every time I see an ECM motor acting weird it's due to the module, why did you replace the whole motor in the first place?

    The motors are programmed so you may have a warranty claim. Did you use a volt meter to look at volts or anything? They typically run past the call but ramping up would signify a failure.
