'65 Dometic M52B

Hi all!

I have run into a little problem with the original fridge in our 65 Tradewind. It works well on LP, but does not cool on AC. The pipe in the rear coming from the heating element gets hot to the touch, but apparently not hot enough. The switch at the bottom of the fridge is set to "On" and I set the thermostat initially to 4, and after several hours of no temperature change, set it to max which didn't change anything as well. I suspect the thermostat to be messed up but I don't know how to test it.

Does anyone have any insight as to what is going on?
