We are outside now using a heat gun on low to dry this out. Maybe it didn't get dry enough the first time. We've had this rig for about 4 years now and I don't think the gas ever worked on the fridge so it's always been on auto. I did notice though that our stuff wasn't warm in the fridge so the check light isn't turning the power off. I just don't understand why all of the sudden it's doing it. All we did was replace the thermistor. We can't try putting the old one back in because my son had to cut the wire to get it out.

Your 1st post stated:
Found out the hose in back broke and water went everywhere.

REMOVE the circuit board so you can DRY the backside ...where the circuits/soldering is done


Is it time for your medication or mine?

The circuit board is on the opposite side so it didn't get wet

The fridge light has been only coming on at night and in the morning we could get it back on but today it's not coming back on. Everything is defrosting

Ok I figured out the issue more. The fridge is shutting off when it gets below freezing at night. As soon we use the heat gun to warm up the back of the fridge it turns right back on. So something isn't keeping the back of my fridge warm. Does anyone know what part that is? Is it the heating element causing this?
