Generally speaking you could have issues running it on LP above 5500' but it should not affect the AC side. So I might check the thermistor to start, if the thermistor test good then you could have an issue with the cooling unit. The thermisor can be ohmed out, click HERE and see page 17, the connector is inside the fridge, if you do not have a volt meter what you can try and do is unplug that connector and the fridge should default to full cooling, if it does cool then bad thermistor. IF it does not cool I might try at a lower elevation and see what happens if you get the same results it sounds like the cooling unit.
