What could be wrong if you replaced the blower motor with a new one and it worked for about 5 minutes and then shut off and the burning wire smell started again?

The first thing I would look for, is too make sure their is no blockage,if it has a vent tube,the motor needs to discharge the air it is producing,the Second thing you said you changed the motor had the original motor been running for a longer period of time,I don't know what it is attached too, does it plug into a wall outlet or does it have a disconnect plug check the wiring to the motor, also check the voltage, there are all kinds of blower mtrs, and hook ups. make sure your connections are tight, any noise an impeller vibration

Check the blower wheel and see if it is warped or out of balance; If it is okay, take the motor back to the parts house and get another one. Make sure you have the right size motor.

the blower resister is no good When our '98 Breeze's blower began to work only on high, we replaced the resister, but it croaked about 2 weeks later. We replaced it 2 more times and the same thing happened. A mechanic told us the blower itselfneeded replacing, and thus, the blower kept burning out the resister. Works fine now. Found ours at a junk yard for $20.

The blower motor is drawing to many amps, replace the blower motor.

If the blower only works on high the blower resistor is most likely the problem and should be replaced. On rare occasions if the car has blown the resistor more than once the blower motor shouuld be replaced.

Same problem on mine...I had the blower motor module replaced and it works great.

They get noisy, squeal and vibrate. Also if you keep burning out the blower motor resistor, that is a sign the blower motor is on its way out.

Probably the blower subwire is melted and burned can be replaced 16$ from the dealer. First check the Fuse for the Blower circuit.

the heater resistor needs to be replaced it is mounted in the heater box next to the blower motor

If you have not started the blower, simply dump the fuel out. If you have started the blower and it ran for just a short time i am afraid you have done serious engine damage to the blower. The cost to repair it would far exceed value of the unit.

The variable rheostat for the blower motor is shot and needs to be replaced. It's on the firewall, near the heater blower, either in the engine compartment or up under the dash. Follow the wires from the blower switch and you'll find it.
