Do you have a fan on the backside of the 'fridge?
As a test, I put a small 110 desk fan in the outside access door, and pointed it to blow "up".
It did a world of good as far as the performance goes - you might want to run a "test" - on two similar days - one with the fan, one without.
Remember, it takes a long time for an absorption type of system to stabilize.
Have you checked the door rubbers for a good seal?
