The thing that shuts down or CONTROLS the heater shut down is the defrost terminator.
The defrost lasts over 20 minutes. That is time to do some serious damage if that terminator was not there. I am thinking you need to change it because maybe it is an 80f or a 70f. All you need to do the job is a 50f. Get one that when closed it comes to life @25f and dies Shuts down @ 50f. Video how to replace terminator:
