Water channels look blocked to me.  May be the cause.

Thanks MB Team! Advice is always welcomed, and I will check the water pathway's. Funny thing is, it flew just fine last season, hitting several unsuspecting squirrels before I decided to make it "Unique" and chopped away the grout.

I did find a reference to case/trans debugging in a late 50's Disney Work Book. Has anyone dealt with this?
