Heating, Air Conditioning, Fridge, HVAC/Thermal switch on Trane XE70


I have a Trane XE70 furnace in my house.  It's ~25 years old which the model # probably tells you.  My problem is the furnace will only stay on for a short time (~5 minutes) even though the setpoint temperature is far from being reached.  There's a thermal switch at the top of the unit,  kinda all by itself that is opening too soon, shutting off the unit.  The box that it's monitoring is barely warm to the touch so I think it's opening pre-maturely.  There are no markings on the switch.  I've jumpered out the switch and it stays on until the s/p is reached so the switch is the problem.  My problem is I can't find a schematic to show me the p/n for the replacement.  Any ideas??
