Norcold refrigerator question

I have a Norcold model 1210 refrigerator that is approximately one year old. I've noticed at different times that the interior temp and contents gets considerably warmer than what I'm used to or expect.
The refrigerator is always on the automatic setting and always left running. Once it starts cooling it will get to the desired temps and stay there but then fail to start back up again for awhile. I started watching it close at home and it stopped cooling completely. I shut it down for the day then turned it back on. It started cooling down with the freezer getting back below freezing. After getting to that point it started warming again.
Anyone else had this problem with their frig? The vent fans are working and the frig does not show any failure codes. Could it be some type of switch or sensor that isn't to the point of showing as failure but obviously not working right? This is my 4th camper with a frig and so I think I know what to expect from one.
The frig is still under warranty and I have contacted my dealer. I'm on the wait list but I thought maybe there was a fix that someone else may know about.
