Refrigerator AC Issue

Just purchased a 1976 Land yacht and in going through everything, I find that the fridge works well on l.p. but not on electric. Heater gets hot but make no cold inside, after a short period, the heater cools off. I'm guessing the AC heater is bad but just strange that it heats up and quits. After digging through pages of the forum, ill test the heater for both continuity and ohms tomorrow.any other suggestions ?

Swaggy guess: Your electric heating element is bad; after it has warmed up for a while, it expands enough to open the circuit.

And welcome to the forums!!
