By the way, I have opened the outside panel, cleaned the backside with compressed air, etc. No obstructions are present. It freezes on 12v or 120v.
According to the manual if the thermistor is bad the fridge will go into limp mode and continue to run on the last available energy source.
You can test the thermistor by unplugging it and putting it in ice water. Give it a few seconds and them read the resistance with an ohm meter. It should read somewhere in the neighborhood of 8000Ω.
ETA -- Forgot to mention. Make sure that the thermistor is in the plastic clip and it's about the center of it. It should also be clipped on the far right fin.
