I cleared the drains and soldered in the transistor and everything is working.
I think davidk hit on something when he said, â€śCould be a fluid build-up just during your driving that drains after you stop.â€ť Dref: you are correct that there is no drain at the bottom of the blower housing. I misspoke. However, there is a drain below the blower housing, at the bottom of the aquarium. I imagine if water somehow entered the blower housing it would be able to drain because the housing is split.
RTSDan: Apparently, water was pooling somewhere causing the â€śmotorboatâ€ť sound. I am glad, with the help from people on this board, that I have apparently fixed the problem. I believe there was a drain problem somewhere, but it is a little unsettling not knowing exactly where the problem was. Possibly, water was draining but not fast enough and clearing all the drains was the remedy.
I discovered three drains. Two rubber ones are located at the bottom of the aquarium and both can be removed, cleaned, and re-installed by reaching your arm underneath the aquarium. The other one is on the bottom of the evaporator housing, but inside the aquarium. David Ingram informed me that you have to remove the evaporator housing securing screws so you can lift the housing enough to reach the rubber drain on the bottom. I actually removed this one and didnâ€™t put it back.
Thanks to all of you who helped me with this repair.
