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

Have you tried also running it on electric with the same problem?

What is the make and model of the fridge? Should be a sticker inside the door. Most are going to be Dometic or Norcold but need the model number.

With out the information requested I can only give you a general idea. IF you get no cooling on both propane and electric then the thermistor/thermostat and cooling unit are suspect, if you can get me the make and model of the fridge I can assist you some more on this, I am around daily and respond when I can
