OK. I understand now.

I will Fill my propane this week and I will fire it up once my burner and orifice arrive. I had been testing on 120.

Well, I am happy to report that you are correct. I guess running the fridge/freezer on 120 takes longer than LP. I replaced the burner tube and orifice. I ran it on LP for a few hours while I went shopping ( also got a wireless thermometer for it ) and the freezer was at 29F and the fridge was at 40F with an ambient temp of 59F. It was only running for about 3 hours and im sure it would have chilled more as time went on.

My temps are approx, it seems as though the wireless thermometer is about 15F higher than reality

Thank you for all your help.

Glad to help, and yes, my experience is that running on LP cools down faster than 120v.

I have a 1200 norcold with same problem turned out it was a circuit board but the fans were burnt out me not hearing it come on

again it's the fans that cool the cools only coming on when the coils reach a certain temp.it also may be you lost all coolant which you can tell by the yellow residue on back of fridge
all I can say thank god for good sams rv insurance
good luck
