Thermistor function: GX5FHDXVQ0

that they had was freezing veggies in the frig., then the frig became too warm.) I explained the possibilities to them and they wanted to go the least expensive route. After removing all of the ice on the coils, I replaced a thermistor located next to the evap. coils, and replaced the defrost thermostat. The heater showed continuity so I let it be. This model also has a thermistor in the frig compartment. Now I don't know if it relates to the operation of the automatic damper, or senses the temp. in the frig. and interacts some other way with the whole system. The defrost timer is in the control board, and I explained to them that if the unit would not work properly they would need a new board, that the defrost timer was probably not
Okay, two things: I could not locate the thermistor in the frig. compartment. A parts diagram seems to show it up by the control panel at the top of the frig., but I took the thing apart and couldn't see it. I took apart the damper assembly, poked around and couldn't find it there either.
After almost two weeks the problem has returned, so I think a new board is needed. I am concerned about the "missing" thermistor and its function. The auto damper was working, because when I had it uncovered you could press the panel button for colder or warmer and the damper worked just fine. Looking forward to someones advice on this. Thanks.

Depending on the missing last digit of your model number,
this may be your tech sheet:

Fridge Thermistor from a similar model:
1. Remove light shield by sliding shield to rear to release cover.
2. Depress with a screw driver through two slots in the front of the light housing release tabs to release Control Board housing.
3. Control Board housing will drop down exposing Control Board and Thermistor.
