Dometic refrigerator cooling

My original 1970 Caravel Dometic refrigerator is not cooling on propane, but does fine on 110. When on lpg, it cools slightly, but after a couple of days, loses all cool. I don't smell ammonia. Flame looks good, no dust or rust in orifice area. Any thoughts? Any suggestions for repair services in southern California? Thanks!

Sounds like the tube above the flame that acts as a "chimney" is clogged with critter residue or rust. If you can run a brush up there, you might be surprised at how much yuck you get out.
