Domestic DM2652 Refrigerator not cooling

Our coach was stored for 2-3 weeks with the propane tank valve closed. I had the tank filled and went home to plug into 110V to start cooling the frig. It did not cool. I then tried the propane side. It took a few times to light but did light off. It did not cool either. It does switch from 110V top propane as it should. It acts like it is stuck in defrost mode. I put a temp gage inside and it actually heated up instead of cool and the humidity dropped.
Any suggestions?

Look in the back of the fridge and unplug the 110v and then locate the red wire that powers the fridge in 12v and disconnect it. Be sure that you don't touch nothing that will kill everything and should reset. Then reconnect the red wire and plug back in. Turn on fridge and test. I have to do this once and solved my problem. Never has acted up again. Let us know if this solves the issue.

if it burns on lp it should cool..might have lost a charge or got a blockage on the core. level and operate on lp with unobstructed vents. better yet, try on 110 and feel the boiler chamber above the burner, carefully, to see if its warming. if there is heat, you should get some cooling in the freezer..

Any noticable smell of amonia. Close the door for a bit, then open it and see if you pick up any smell.

Is the cooling fan running. Mine had a 1amp fuse blow about 5 years ago, no problem since.

I took Ramair advice, I turned off the master 12v switch which should have killed power to refrigerator. Turned it on with just gas power. Four hours later the freezer was already down to 39*. Thanks for your help!
