Refrigerator not working

Original 1968 refrigerator pilot not lighting. (was tested by RV shop)
Electrically, it runs, but barely gets cold.
Worth trying to fix or best to replace?
Thanks! Jim

In my opinion, a 46 year old refrigerator is not worth any serious time or money spent on a repair. Some have good luck with rebuilt cooling units, but yours also appears to need work on the propane section (at least, other issues may surface). Add to that the wear and tear of time on the interior parts and plastics plus shelving... well, you would still have an old unit.

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I think a new fridge is the best bet. I just wish they weren't so expensive :-(
