dometic a/c freezing up repair

Over the weekend I had an issue with my 13.5 k freezing up.
Called my dealer this am and after we talked a little bit we came to a solution.
He said there's two things possible.
1) low on Freon (complete unit replaced under warranty)
2) freeze sensor has fallen off of lower coil.

Ok now things are clicking for me, when it had froze up I had taken lower cover off with foam screen this weekend to see if there was something I could do.
I remember the sensor laying ontop of all the wires.
He said clip it back on the coils securely and all should be fine.

Tonight I'm going to re-atttach and check unit but seems like the issue.

Just an Fyi if your unit freezes up to check freeze sensor.

I'll try to take pics and post
Ron

I will tonight.
I suspect all will be well once I attach sensor back on coils.
Hopefully I can take pics to turn out.

This sensor is viewed from inside with filter and filter holder removed.
