Hi, I'm Robert. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Have you tried running it on BOTH LP and AC power for at least 6 hours?

What is the make and model of the fridge?

Thanks, Robert

Norcold 611vrt. What is LP power?
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 3 years ago

The fridge will work on propane and AC power. When you are diagnosing you would want to know if it cools on one source and not the other. SO run it on AC power for 6 hours and if the box does not get cold run it on propane (LP). If the box still does not get cold it could be a cooling unit or thermistor problem. IF it cools on one source and not the other then it is NOT the cooing unit or thermistor. IF you want to do some testing and get back to me that is fine.
