After it has been running for a few days, look inside of the freezer at the lower back panel. You will most likely see frost. This means you have a defrost problem. You will need to fix this or the cycle will continue. To fix, you will need to replace the defrost heaters that are located behind the panel I was telling you about. I don't know what make or model you have so I'll mention both types. One type heater is glass, they will be below each section of coil. The other is cal-rod. The same thing stove eyes are made of. It will be wrapped around the coils. Replace which ever one you have and it will fix your problem

Why do freezer and refrigerator get warm and then cool down again and repeat the cycle every few days?

check fan operation if fan not working will cause icing and the air wont pass thru causing temperature to rise in unit than defrost cycle removes some of icing and unit will work to cool down till iced over --other is defrost timer damaged or electrical connection problem

Cooling fans not working properly

And why do you think this is a problem, they do not run anymore than what is required to cool the engine, as it gets hotter the fans will run longer at a higher speed, but you will seldom see that except on very hot days.

Dryer will start to heat up and then the heating element will stop and it will cool down and then it will start again. It is taking a long time to get clothes dry.

Some of these have a knob setting for "wrinkle free" and they can malfunction to the point that they do not allow the heater to stay on long enough. I personally do not like the wrinkle free features for even another reason.....if you do not remove the clothes at the end of the cycle then it will sit there a few minutes and then automatically turn on for a few minutes to remove the wrinkles and then rest again and repeat this cycling on and off indefinitely for hours or days until you completely remove the clothes...wastes energy and a bit scary to have it come on by itself. So...look to make sure you are not using the wrinkle free settings and then see if it works ok. If not then you may have a bad timer control.

LG 8008R compressor runs one minute then fan blows 3 minutes

You need to have an AC tech come out and do some preliminary testing on this.

looks like operating normally...

the fridge as it reaches it's temperature shuts the compressor off and then after a few minutes..the fridge would increase temperature again and would turn back the compressor again.

its the thermostat which is cutting on and off the compressor.

and i think it is normal. based on the temperatures that you is cooling very well..0 F in the freezer and 40 in the refrigerator... that's good.

Whirlpool dryer

If your dryer stops during its cycle, wait ten minutes and start dryer again. If dryer starts, then the motor was overheating.

Solution, Check for lint blockage around the motor and for possible overloading. If dryer repeatedly stops during its cycle, especially during consecutive loads, replace motor.

Good luck

Short cycling

It doesn't sound like it has failed.

The whole point of the % setting is so that the room holds at that %. When the humidity drops lower than, it will kick in. When it raises to that number it will turn off.

If the on and off is bugging you try raising the percentage. Or lower the temperature of your house. Heating will dry out the air and cause your machine to kick in.

Good Luck.

Grand Wega picture going on and off; standby light flashing, sound remains on

Is the cooling fan running properly?  I'm just guessing, but it sounds like it could be overheating and shutting off, which allows it to cool off enough to turn on and overheat all over again.
