Doesn't have one. It functions thru a motherboard mounted on the bottom back rear of the machine.
Normally 5 thermistors are used (3 in the freezer 2 in the fresh food compartment) to operate the machine.
Defrosting cycles are controlled by the motherboard with the input as well from compressor running time and the number of door openings.

The real problem here is that the ice you see on the back wall is blocking air flow so the unit can not get cold. The ice block is caused most of the time by a problem with the automatic defrost circuit.
Since you omitted the last few digits of the model number I will cite this model as a reference:
Components that can cause defrost problems are:
Items 230 (Defrost heater), 240 (Defrost themost), and 241 (Temp sensor) of the above link.
The main control board assembly Item 801 of this link:
And internal wiring if there is connector or chaffing problem.
To get rid of the ice for 2 - 3 days you can do a MANUAL defrost by unplugging the unit and removing the freezer contents. Then direct and external fan into the unit for just over 2 hours ro melt all of the ice while it makes a water mess that will need tended to. After the 2 hours return the unit to normal use. If the ice block / rear panel frost returns in 2 - 4 days you have an automatic defrost problem that will need service. Until the defrost problem is corrected you can plan on doing manual defrosting sessions as directed above in 3 - 4 day intervals.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
