The fan might be hitting the shroud - cracking it open the shroud frees up the fan.

Defrost on my 2002 Cavalier will not work properly. Will melt ice off windows in the winter, but the side windows stay foggy unless I crack open a window.


your car's interior is wet-damp and is not being allowed to evaporate. Leave your windows cracked open in the garage a few day...and/or dry out the carpet or mats with a heater-blower.

I have Rheem model 41V50 leaking from the top...The top is a lid with screw....can I buy and replace the top ?


No.
Replace tank.
Buy 40 gallon from local Lowes and install yourself.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html

Under thin metal shell is a welded steel tank, surrounded by insulation and then covered with painted metal shell. The shell is what you look at.
The inside steel tank is made to withstand high pressure expansion that comes with heating water.
The steel tank has rusted out.
Turn gas control valve to vacation, so pilot light stays on, and then only heat enough water as needed until you can replace tank.

Prevent next tank from rusting by replacing anode rod, and ground water pipes.

Water temp stays at 160 degrees


Specific type of water heater does not show on web search.
I am guessing you have tank-type electric water heater.
Did you replace both thermostats and test elements?
Element could be cracked, thermostats can stick open, upper thermostat wired incorrectly, wire shorted.
We know that electric power to water heater is good, and circuit breaker is good.
Why is eco is not tripping? Why is TP valve is not leaking?

Will a crack in the shell make the heater leak??


If the metal has cracked, it is only a matter of thime before it starts to leak. I wouldn't use it unless you are home. If it does leak, it can cause the heater to overheat and be a potential fire hazard
