denman is a splendid one to behold

I believe this may help
Part number: AP3722172

Part number: AP3722172

Kit is for a top mount fridge.
Unit must be the type that uses an old style thermostat.
Newer electronically controlled units are a no go.

The reason food is thawing is that the defrost heater comes on, adds heat toi the freezer but the compressor never comes on to get rid of this heat because of the ambient temperature itself is keeping the unit cold.
Basically this adds heat to the thermostat so the compressor will start.

This should allow you to run the unit down to around freezing.

If your exterior temperature is dropping much lower than freezing then I would not recommend it.
The compressor has oil in it which thickens as the temperature drops so very low temperatures put an extra stain on the compressor motor when it tries to start.

Here is some additional info
