Rear brakes ceasing after break job?

After having the rotors and pads replaced on my 2011 F 150 FX 4 the rear brakes have ceased up after I have put it in reverse to back up. When I get out the brakes are super hot once I put it in drive and go a short distance. But it seems to let go after a bit.

Are the brakes not seated correctly for this to be occurring or was this an improper installation?

Mark , You may have adjusted them up way too high, ebrake cable could be sticking, adjusters not assembled correctly, etc.. Ensure pins and slide lubed and moving free and pads sitting in proper position. Maybe take apart again and check all your work, is it both sides on the rear and is it disc brakes. Video and guide below may help. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.

Thanks, this was a job I did not do. It was done at a Ford dealer. I went back, but the dealer claimed they could not replicate the problem. Yes they are disc brakes. I believe they are set up too high. I'm not a mechanic, but from the years of driving I have seen this in a similar situation in other brake jobs in the past . Thanks.
