while waiting on an answer you could look over some of these manuals maybe?REFRIGERATION
May the hinges of our friendship
        never grow rusty.

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
I love fan letters! LOL

If you look at the replacement part below, their is no connection at all, so that tells me you just cut and splice:
Thermister WR25X10025
I gotta tell you I have worked on older model ice boxs without all this fancy stuff, the terminator( defrost thermal disc) always comes cut and splice, I bet this one does too.

I will try that as soon as part arrived on Mon/Tue just one quick question need to solder this wire to joint or just twist and put electrical tap or something else.

Thanks for all your help.

Use some wire nuts to make the connection

You could use butt connectors and shrink tape to keep corrosion at a minimum.

Repace the evaporator thermister. Should have been done before replacing the board.
