What is the archive URL? Is it a public 'pipermail' link? If so, what is
Mailman's archives/public/LISTNAME for this list. It should be a symlink
to archives/private/LISTNAME. If it is a directory rather than a
symlink, remove it - Mailman will create the symlink as needed.

Otherwise, look at Mailman's logs, particularly 'error'. Also, there
should be an archives/private/LISTNAME.mbox/LISTNAME.mbox file which is
a cumulative mbox containg the full archive, and an
archives/private/LISTNAME/ directory containing the html archives. Is
that all there? Is there a permissions issue? What does Mailman's
bin/check_perms say?
