I feel your pain on this one as a fellow RV tech. I am not a fan at all of these 12 volt compressor fridges, we see allot of questions on them. First make sure the fridge is level although it is not a propane fridge if it is not level it can affect how the doors close and you may not get a good seal, you can do the dollar bill trick like you would on a propane/electric fridge. I do believe this model should have two fans, one in the box and one in the freezer you should hear them coming on and off, make sure the fans are not iced up and are moving. Beyond that if you have good DC voltage to the fridge the compressor may be at fault. You may want to try and get a hold of Dometic direct on warranty being a 2022 any issues should be covered they might be willing to swap the fridge out. I personally would never own one of these fridges but I am a bit old school and like the propane/electric models for many reasons. Below is a some a link for some info for you, try and verify the installation steps as well.

IF you have more questions or concerns please feel free to contact me, I am around daily and respond when I can.
