  • Is the control panel giving you any flash codes?
  • If you go outside behind the fridge at the panels. Can you smell propane and hear the igniter clicking when another turns the fridge to come on with gas?

I am confused about what is wrong?

  • I have a norcold 2118 it cools on 120 but it not on propane
  • The refrigerator runs fine on propane

Are you saying the fridge works fine on AC and propane but you want the lower portion to get cooler?

Since you were not able to reply to the info request I sent. I cannot be as accurate and thorough as I would like. I hope what I can provide does help.

One possible cause can be a faulty temp reading thermistor on the cooling fins in the refrigerator.
