Hi All,
I have a LFCS22520D. I keep it relatively cold (34 fridge, -1 freezer) because I have medication that is temp sensitive. I have noticed that it seems to short cycle at times. It's mostly with the amount of time turned off. For example, it just turned off for 4 mins, then back on. However, the running time also sometimes is quite short, turning off after running for 15 minutes. The way I understand it, modern fridges are designed so they run the majority of the time (albeit not with short shut-downs in between?)

The fridge and freezer are both cooling fine; no problem there. The icemaker is full (I actually often hear the 'feeler' arm coming out and retracting since the ice bucket is full). Also, just yesterday I vacuumed out the condenser to eliminate the possibility that it was being caused by overheating issues. Am I maybe being too 'observant,' and the fridge is just working like it should?

Thanks
