Sorry to hear you are having problems with the fridge. A few items can cause this if you are not getting full cooling in the box.

To start off I would see if the compressor runs for a long time/continuously if that is the case then normally it is a Insufficient ventilation and/or air supply problem, the Condenser is dirty, or the fan is faulty. What I might do on this one is clean the condenser make sure you have good ventilation, before taking any other steps I might remove the fridge so it does in fact have good air flow and run it to see if that makes a difference, the only reason I suggest that is because you indicated it was a conversion and these need good air flow to work properly, if it was not installed correctly then it could be part of the problem. Beyond that I might have a technician take a look at this, no more then 1 hour of labor to troubleshoot.

Hope this points you in the right direction.

Thanks, Robert
