Electric sauna - temperature limit switch?

hello. I have a 110 volt Waterstar infrared dry sauna. It heats up to about 95 degrees then the LED lights on the control panel will flash, and the heat cuts out. No circuit breaker is tripped. Researching on the internet, it seems like this could be the "temperature limit switch" which is supposed to automatically shut the heat off if the temperature gets too high. My problem is --- how do I find that? What does it look like?

I replaced the main circuit board, and something called the "temperature sensor", but I guess the "temperature sensor" is not the same thing as the temperature limit switch? or is it? Any suggestions appreciated on how to fix this problem. Thanks.

Please post the model number for your spa.
I could only find links to Chinese companies but no product info.

Typically a temperature limit switch is a stand alone sensor in the power line.
It doesn't usually connect or control the controller.

Thanks, Pete. I bought the sauna used and I don't see a model no on the sauna itself. All I know is that it's a Waterstar 3 or 4 person sauna - probably about 15 years old.
