Other questions about "Malfunction"

Q: malfunction v.
(of a machine, etc. ) to fail to work correctly
————————
This is what a dictionary says.
My questions are:
1. Why is it “OF a machine”? Can I use the preposition “For a machine”?

2. Why is it “to fail...”? Is it better to remove the word TO to show it is a verb?

A: 1) It is written as OF because it is referring/talking about a machine.
A sentence can be : malfunctioning of that machine is causing problem.
Yeah you can use FOR here (because it is referring to a machine) but a sentence can't be made .

2)nope. You can't remove to (it won't make sense then...)
to is just like usually in dictionary language it is
- to eat ( not just eat )
- to be (not just be)

hope you got my point.
