One needs to check if fans are running correctly otherwise, gauges need to be connected onto system.  assuming the condenser(radiator) is clean.

LG LW2416HR window AC / heat unit problem. Compressor will not shut off or cycle. It runs all of the time. Please see below for details.

Has to be a stuck relay or contactor. I'm sure it's a relay on a circuit board so likely the whole board will need replaced. Never opened one up and don't see a wire diagram. But, if you need heating, unhook the compressor. Obviously wrap any bare wires, obviously cooling works but will have to turn off breaker to shut down. Temporary fixes obviously but will get you by. Best wishes!

I live in the northeast, can a mini pomegranate tree survive the winters?

The tree should have no problem surviving the winter as long as it is in a pot that you can bring in side. During the cold months, the tree should be brought in and put next to a window, preferably the sunniest one in your home. As soon as it starts to warm up, bring it outside. Mini pomagranates tend to blossom and produce fruit in late June/July/August.

(Land Rover Headlights Fail in Cold Weather)

Sounds like a bad headlight Relay. If you have an Owners Manual you can look up the correct Relay in the Powerbox. You may find that Autozone,com has chassis and fusebox diagrams. Register for FREE on their site and then you can toggle down to diagrams and print or view what you need.

Winter Tires

Better Starting Grip in Icy Conditions.
A special Winter Flex Compound, specially formulated to maintain its grip under the most extreme cold-weather conditions, including snow and ice, to help deliver better starting grip and shorter stopping distances.

Better Traction In All Winter Conditions
Cross Z-Sipes Technology uses a specially designed curve that locks the sipes in place, helping to provide improved grip on snow and ice. And because the sipes are full-depth, their grip lasts winter after winter.

RV AC unit won't cool, blows chuncks of ice

It's most likely an airflow problem, you say you had the vents closed? Icing up is normally caused by lack of load (air flow) or loss of refrigerant charge. Make sure all your vents are open to allow for as much airflow as possible and that your filter is clean. Some units do not work well on low airflow setting when the outdoor temps cool down at night.

No start up

No its not. Bad valves are caused by dirty filers,dirty coils that cause liquid refrigerant to slug compressor and knockout the valves. Rus

Fridge not cold but freezer working great

I had the same problem, and it turned out to be a cooked fan motor.
I couldn't find a reasonable (less than $150) replacement motor from Haier places, but I just took the motor out and took it to an appliance repair center (in North Denver)
They said it was a standard part, charged me around $22 for a new one and I was all set.

For my replacement motor, it was a reversible design, and was initially set to go the wrong way, so I had to reverse it.

2001 cherokee windshield washers not working

Can you hear it make a "buzzing" pump noise when you press the fluid button try it with the key on and the engin off so you can hear better? also do you live up north and is it or has it been below freezing? and if so are you using winter non freeze formula?

1, if there is no pump noise then first check the fuse box, unfortunatly it could be the pump had burned out from dry running.

2. MORE Likely if your in the North, people often forget to put in winter washer fluid espically if the car has been down south. ice crystals form in the hoses and block the fluid, easy fixes is to park in a warm garage over night once thawed spray all the fluid out and put in winter formula otherwise it will happen again.

3. you could have a dirt blockage in the hose if the pump is working and your not in the cold north, see if you can gently remove the hose near the bottle and have somone press the button see if fluid comes out then reattach and repet these steps till you find the blocked fluid hose.

Good luck.
