I believe I may have found my problem via internet research. Seems the thermistor (That thingy with the wire stuck to the fins in the back of older fridges) actually sends it feed to the circuit board via the light in the fridge compartment on old style units.

When in boondock mode, such as I am for the next 4 months, I disconnect that light to save a little energy. The previous owner made this easy to do, he broke one of the connections and I just haven't soldered it back together again. When I want the light, I cheezily move the tab over and make a sloppy connection that way. When I don't want the light, I leave it dangling.

I made the connection, fired the fridge back up after a little more precision leveling, and all works as it should now. Been fine for several days.

Perhaps Harry Young could comment? I would think I would have the opposite problem if the thermistor was out of the circuit, fridge getting TOO cold, but I am no fridge expert.
