If the temp has come up and you are getting no cooling on BOTH LP AND AC power the suspect components are the thermistor and cooling unit.

If it is still very cold it could play a factor, when it gets near 0 F or below you can actually loose cooling in the box due to lack of heat transfer, for that a drop light on the back side of the fridge may help.

What you can also do is disconnect the thermistor, it shares the connector in the box with the light, when you disconnect it the fridge will go into a full cooling cycle, if nothing happens after several hours then the cooling unit is suspect, normally when a cooling unit becomes blocked it needs to be replaced. You can try tapping the coils with a rubber mallet or pull the fridge flip it end over end and let it stand level upright for several hours and then see if it will start cooling, no guaranties doing that but it would be worth a try. When the ammonia solution stops circulating you loose cooling in the box, the freezer may still work as it will get cold long before the box will, If the coils are cold it is a sign of the cooling unit blockage, if you smell ammonia or see a yellowish powder on the back of the fridge then it has ruptured. For a blockage you may not have any symptoms at all but NO cooling on BOTH sources.

Hope this points you in the right direction.

Robert
