Domestic fridge issue

Any advice on why the fridge won’t keep cold using electric but will on gas?

Do you mean Dometic refrigerator? To me, domestic is a home style that does not have a gas option.
There is a separate electric heating element on my Dometic refrigerator. This would allow cooling on gas and not electric. However, if 12 v battery power (coach battery) is not available, removed or low voltage, that would also give the symptoms described.

There is an electric heating element that is provides heat for the boiler system when not on gas. It is relatively inexpensive and easy to replace and, to me, that is your most likely suspect.
