It's only money right...?
Yes the big recall was due to fires and units affected had a sheet metal shield installed. In your case had the boiler and absorber both been hot that reflects low on refridge. With absorrber cooler than boiler, that points to blockage. Heat is not being absorbed due to no or low flow. I saw somewhere with older unit they would be removed and upended to dislodge the debris. If you can reach the coils while its firing on gas maybe tapping with a soft mallet you can free the blockage. Otherwise if it sounds like duck, smells like a duck, and looks like a duck, it probably is a blockage as you suggested in Post 1. For a sub to repair it get a quote to buy and install the cooling unif for less than a new refridge. Believe reefer repair foks can do less than RV repair shops.
