OK, it took me about two minutes to google that model and find
a parts list. It includes:

That would appear to be the likely problem. Another possibility
would be that nothing is wrong with the cuttoff and instead it's
acting to shut it off because it's overheating due to something
else, eg insufficient air flow. The actual part might also have
identifying numbers that could source it, cross reference it, etc

As to the claim that if you bypass it, your fire insurance is

Fire insurance typically pays off on your stupid actions. I
have yet to see one where they said you shouldn't have used
a frayed extension cord to permanently run that refrigerator
or you shouldn't have left newspapers stacked around the
fireplace, etc, so we aren't going to pay. Note that I'm not
saying he should bypass it, I agree, that's probably a bad idea.

His insurance might still pay off, but he might be vulnerable to civil suit from any parties that may be injured, feel injured, or claim to be injured.

that truck 24/7 for around $3500 to $5000 per month.
That way, when the fire starts, they will be right there to put out the
