Vinoteque QT600 Temp Probe Replacement?

I think my temp probe, or the Vintronic I Analog controller is no longer working.
The cooling unit now just keeps cooling, well below the set temp.

Any ideas what part and where I could order a new temperature probe?
I do see a Vintronic I on ebay but without the temp probe.
