No......based on what you said the cooling unit is bad and needs to be rebuilt or replaced or get a new fridge. ATCO America makes a good rebuilt one for about $899 installed (what I charge in my shop) that has the same warranty as a new one. If this is in good shape you might consider that. On the negative side, some of these parts are getting hard to find. Hope that helps. I am attaching a copy of the Norcold Service Manual for you so you can check on this yourself. Print it out so you have it.
