I purchased a new cooling fan kit and it still does not work. Please help

We have changed water pump, thermostat, and the coolant temp sensor. And the heater core was recently changed due to it being plugged. The heater will blow cool air unless the engine is above 2000 rpms and then it blows warm air. Their is no smoke or steam coming off the engine when it over heats...

I can hear the little motor turning if I'm quiet, when I turn the dial to warm but still only cold air blows. My brother checked the thermostat and he says it's not that.
