If your LP is burning and heating the boiler section ( the vertical silver tube on the left side of the unit at the rear) and you are not getting any cooling, it sounds like you might have a blockage in your cooling unit which is preventing the proper flow of the heated ammonia thru the cooling unit.
A quick check is to open the outside door at the back of the fridge and place your hand on the horizontal cylinder to see if it's warm. Then feel the lowest coil right above that. They should be about the temperature of the unit is operating normally.
If not, your Dometic warranty should take care of installing a replacement cooling unit.
