I know Samurai has worked on these things.  I had a call if I serviced this particular model.  Complaint is does not seem as cold & bottom is wet.   Can any body explain theory of the workings & what to put eyeballs on?   Wetness is probable restricked drain tube.    How does it know to switch to LP when no electricity is present (auto mode)?

Easiest test on the cooling unit is to listen for a percolating sound in the boiler pack. If you hear that, there's been a system leak-- new cooling unit time.

If it cools normally on electric but not on gas, then most likely the gas burner is fouled and needs a good cleaning. Check the flame, should be mostly blue. If lots of yellow or soot, then definitely a fouled burner.

Level is critical in these units because the aqua ammonia flows back to the boiler pack by gravity. Use a round bubble level, the bubble should be within the inner ring.
