I removed all of the internal shelves from the refrigerator side. I then removed the cooling panels from the bottom area. this exposed the fan assembly and cooler. I found ice all over the unit. I had to unplug the refrigerator and used a hair dryer to melt the ice away. I then found the sensor and replace it. After putting the refrigerator back together, I plugged it in and let it cool overnight. I also put a thermometer to validate that cooling was stable. it has been a week with the new sensor and the refrigerator has not frozen over and has been very stable.
