Check to see that you didn't leave something un hooked. Sounds like you are having a mode door issue.

Dandy is right. Either a vacuum hose is disconnected or something didn't get plugged back in when the blower motor was replaced. Retrace your steps. When the climate control system loses vacuum or power it defaults to defrost for safety reasons. HTH. -Jim

Your system does not use vacuum it uses electric stepper motors to control air flow. If one is unplugged then it defaults to defrost. Also same can happen if one fails.
