looking at that, there appears to be another part my fridge is missing. The Thermister Adjuster. Looks like a short cable the thermister plugs into and then it plugs into the controller board. My fridge had the thermister plugged directly into the controller board. Do I need to buy and install that additional part?

It appears that way , I can’t see yours but that makes sense

Thanks, ***** ***** one. Perhaps previous owners (I just bought this a couple months ago) removed it. Even the thermister appeared to have been tampered with. Really appreciate all your help.
