Yes - your issue is definately the controller board... intermittant problem usually is from bad solder joints. Parts CAN fail directly out of the box - although highly unlikely.
Thanks for using FixYa

Your fridge is working against outside air tempurature and any solar heating effect. To maximise the operation of your fridge allways try to park the unit so the fridge side will be in the shade. Do you have a fan to create the air circulation in the back of the fridge? There are kits available for this. I use a recovered converter fan and have it set up in the bottom of the fridge cavity below the coils and blowing straight up. This helps a lot. The kits normally come with a 80 degree F temp switch, I have a leftover toggel from some where for mine. I don't think your fridge is the problem. I don't think a new one will fix it. Your best bet is to do the kind of thing I have above and it should work better. Hopefully good enough. Good Luck

I would replace the thermister and also check the gas soleniod. Don't those get weak once they get hot or warm. Hope this helps.
