Got caught in a rain/sleet/ice storm while on a trip. The defroster blower motor quit, causing the windshield to ice up before we could get off the highway. A real white-knuckle experience!

The contact states water went into the blower motor from the windshield and caused the blower motor to rust. As a result of the rust, the defroster no longer worked. It was not repaired under warranty because it was caused by water damage.
