You need a new cooling unit. That ammonia smell means that your heating unit is shot, needs to be replaced, and there are a coupla ways to go here.
1) Order up a rebuilt (or new) online, and replace it yourself. (Handyman skill level:fair.) $500.
2) Go to an RV repair shop and have that done $700.00 - $100.00
3) Buy a new fridge. $1000.00 ++

Usually when this happens it is because of a problem with the fan that moves cold air from the freezer section of your unit to the refrigerator section. Either the fan has gone bad or the unit has frosted up to the point of stopping the fan. Try defrosting (unplugging) the unit over night and then check it to see if the fan runs. If not then replace the fan. If it runs and then stops after awhile like days or even a few weeks, then you may need a defrost timer.
The defrost control can also be called an advanced control timer.
The other less likely thing that can go wrong is for the defrosst coil to burn out.
If you have an OHM meter you can check for resistance, if it is open then it is no good.
You can do a search for "appliance parts" and then enter your model number to find replacement parts.
check a couple of sites to make sure you get then best price.
I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!
Thanks for using Fixya!!
