Dometic RM 60 cooling problems

I have been remodeling my trailer, and pulled the refrigerator to do work. This unit has been sitting for a while so I plugged it in and left it on all night. It only got down to 60 deg. Any suggestions ? Should I turn it upside down to collect all the ammonia? Need suggestions. Gaskets are good, heater definitely works.

That would be the first thing I would try. Dave

after reading all the threads it finally sank in that when I did the test on this unit it was around 100 deg and without the unit being in its cabinet and thereby not getting any chimney effect would drop the cooling to about zero. Started it on electric again , this time with a fan pushing air over the exchanger in the back . That did it . Just trouble getting used to no compressor, so it takes a lot longer to cool.
