What are the defects?

If the rear wiper blade is frozen due to extreme low ambient temperature, and the rear wipe is activated, a condenser within the wiper motor assembly may short circuit. This condition may occur due to reverse electromotive power from the wiper motor. As a result, the wiper motor condenser may generate heat due to high intermittent current flow and in worse case may ignite.

What are the hazards?
