Hi

The control board will more then likely be the cause of this as this controls the compressor so as it reachs temp and then goes warm then the control board isnt bring the compressor back on.

But as to the sensor im not sure which one he would have replaced but this kind of fault.

We do replace loads of defrost sensors in side the fridge section as they are a common problem as it causes the fridge evaporator to ice up to much. Not sure if its the fridge sensor as thats the one that usually gets replaced.

If it is this one you are looking to repalce then you need to empty the fridge and remove the rear panel in the bottom and there will be the sensors there. Its usually yellow and plugs into the back wall.

As theres 2 sensors in the fridge section and 2 in the freezer. But as a rule its usully the fridge sensors we replace a lot off.

But as the fault of it going off this is nearly always down to the control board itself here.
