Refrigerator not cooling

Went out this weekend. Noticed that the refrigerator was not cold. We were using Propane, Switched to electric.. No different. I have heard that some very small bugs can get into the orifices and plug them. Would this problem be on Electric also. I tried to disconnect the LP line but it was not able. Can I disconnect from the tank beyond the regulator? 2007 Jay feather 19h.
The name Norcold Model N611T
Thanks Mike Dickinson

Since it won't work on both sources, I would question how close to level your trailer was. Absorption fridges don't work if too far off level, they get vapor locked. Try leveling the TT and see if it starts working again (allow maybe an hour for things to settle after leveling if suspecting a vapor lock).

I would try and look at as much of the back of the fridge as you can get to. Look for off white or yellowish crystals. It is possible that the cooling unit has leaked and failed.

my fridge wasnt working either. or so i thought.
If your propane regulator isnt working correctly, the fridge may not either.
Also, the slide inside the fridge may have repositioned itself?
Also, it takes forever for them to get cold. 24 hours. So i keep mine on electric when plugged in at home, so when i get to camp, it is still cold and doesnt take as long to get cold.
