It's possible the aftermarket parts are the problem, but not likely. I would suspect the blower motor itself more, if it's drawing too much current it will burn out the resistor and possibly other electrical components. If the blower motor was aftermarket it might be the problem, especially parts made by Carbone (I think that's the company) they are known for inferior quality.
