The Crontab on my system keeps disabling.

I have to restart the cron daily or manually run the cron myself. I have check numerous things online and nothing seems to fix it. Here is the output for cron status

root@NLDW3:~# systemctl status cron
* cron.service - Regular background program processing daemon
   Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/cron.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
   Active: failed (Result: signal) since Mon 2019-10-07 00:00:01 EDT; 2 days ago
     Docs: man:cron(8)
