Since your refrig is cooling , I would replace the # 4 AND # 5 thermistors . The # 4 thermistor , tells the main control board , the temp of the coils , if they need defrosted , when they are thru defrosting . This thermistor is the 1 " long , torpedo looking piece , clipped on the top left of the coils , with 2 white wires going to it . Part number WR55X10025 . It would be advisable to also replace the # 5 thermistor , located at the bottom of the freezer , slightly in front of the drain , also with 2 white wires going to it , slid into a housing . This thermistor , is the freezer thermistor , which tells the control board , the freezer temp , when to cycle off , associated with the fan speed also .

SOURCE: Bad thermistor easy to replace?
It is not "easy" but it is not rocket science either. You will have to have the unit pulled out from where it is installed to have access to the back of the unit to replace the thermsitor correctly (it feeds to the back through a hole in the upper right (as seen from the front) and follows the refrigerant tubing to the mechanical area where it connects to the control board on terminal #s 4 and 5. The thermistor itself is connected the the back of the evaporator plate. Depending on what year (and how accurate the assembly was) it should be on the right wing. Sometimes it was connected to the upper middle section of the evaporator plate like it is on the 6CAR. The repair can be done with common hand tools by someone who is average to above average handy. When you order the part, it should come with instructions.
There is short-cut for those units that are hard to remove from where they are installed but should only be used as a last resort since it requires cutting and splicing the thermsitor leads which if not done with care can lead to accelerated failure of the new thermsitor and/or control box.
