The thermostat (aka. "cold control" - see the link below) should be able to be tested for continuity (see the second link below).

Yes, that is the purpose of the control. To turn the compressor on and off.I've determined that this cold control switch when turn to the off will stop the compessor, when turned back on, the fans starts and the compressor waits about 4 min. to start up again.
