Any signs of a leak on the backside?
I replaced the cooling unit on ours 3 years ago from rvcoolingunits.com. Still going strong. We boondock so wanted to keep norcold.

I replaced mine a few weeks ago. No rocket science but a heck of a lot of grunting and groaning.

Another vote for replacing the cooling unit. It's not that hard. I did mine inside the rig though it might have been easier (more room) if I had taken it outside. The kit I got came with the thermal mastic sealant and foil tape. The replacement cooling unit works great. This is my 5th season with it. During last weekend's trip it kept the fridge at around 30 degrees and the freezer 15-below zero. That was on electric. It gets colder on propane.
