comment What could cause a replacement A/C condenser fan motor to only run for 3 minutes?
I'd say it's a good chance it's the amperage; the new one is trying to draw up to 2A, while the supporting circuitry is only expecting to supply a max. of ~1.4A

@Steven Indeed, it is on a level surface.

comment How can I isolate my bedroom from refrigerator noise?
A door perhaps? :) That 2D floor plan may not be enough to go by. Like, are the Fridge/Freezer in their own enclosed, floor-to-ceiling space? Or, is it just a fridge sitting in the room? What makes up the walls of the corridor? Are they full length/height walls?

@unclebrad Nope. It's running very well other than the fact that it's gathering this water. The water is clean and cold. And the machine was semi-disassembled, and completely drained/dried twice this week.

So you're suggesting condensation is being formed as the cold air hits the room right at the exit, and then falling back into the unit, vs. forming at the coil inside and being pulled into the blower?

The square chamber the blower cage is located in has an insert under the blower cage, which is made of shaped Styrofoam to make a rounded shroud (for lack of better word) under the cage. It's a tight, riveted area, so adding a drain line down through the foam, and then through sheet metal wall to the collection chamber would be a HUGE PITA (even if I got the blower out), an almost complete tear-down to the chassis, and possibly (re)bending sheet metal. So I'm hoping I'm missing something before I have to resort to that. :)

Oh, it's definitely condensation. No more than should be able to be handled by the unit though; it's like it's jumping OVER the part that it's supposed to collect in.
