If the fan and the heat sink are clogged with dirt the cpu processor is overheating and will usually shut the laptop down. Try a can of compressed air and clean the fan "usually on the bottom" next use the can on the open vents on the back of the laptop, give it a good blast. if it works it will be a quick fix and should be a warning to have it properly cleaned and serviced by a computer professional.

Ac compressor runs 5 min shuts off then restarts 10 minutes later for another 5 min fan runs ok

Shutting down on safety. It's likely a pressure switch, possibly low pressure if fan is running.

My lennox heat pump frequently shows df and cold air pumps out for about 5 minutes then restarts. what is causing this?

Its getting too cold outside for the heatpump to operate. It must defrost the coil. You should have backup electric heat inside your airhandler, possibly not setup or possibly not even there. On your tstat in settings or set up look for heat pump with back up electric heat

2002 Malibu stalls while driving, doesn't over heat. But can start smelling gas fumes before it stalls. usually wait about 5 mins then restarts. in higher elevation runs fine but in lower elevatio

It sounds like the catalytic converter could possibly be almost completely plugged up not allowing the exhaust to leave the engine like it should. It just builds up in the cylinder head and when it gets too much in it built up and there's no where to go, it'll stall the engine. By letting it sit for a few minutes, it gives the exhaust time to find a way out and the car will restart.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...
