Could be that, or it could be the temperature sensor on the evaporator - if that goes, then as soon as the freezer starts a defrost cycle, it will think it's got the evaporator hot enough and will start cooling again.
Suggest you let the freezer thaw out then, with a voltmeter connected across the terminals on the board which connect to the sensor, turn the freezer on and see if the sensor reacts sensibly to the evaporator cooling down. It's usually done with a thermistor, but just for the moment, I can't remember whether it's usually a PTC or an NTC.
That way, if it is the sensor, you'll be spared the expense of replacing a serviceable pcb.

My oven is turning on by itself. It will heat up to around 200 - 250 degress and shut off. I have made sure the knob is in the "OFF" position. Any ideas?

I will give the wiring diagram a try but your refrigerator has a simple defrost timer that is most likely the reason for your problem. Give me a few moments and I will give you a photo. Inside the fresh food compartment and behind the control panel is where the timer is located. Sea Breeze
