Electrolux builtin Fridge/freezer Fridge not cooling

The problem I have is the freezer section appears to be working ok -24c.
But the fridge is not cooling staying around +14C.
The appliance is about 8yrs old.
The information sticker is missing from inside the fridge compartment.
I thought about replacing the thermostat but not certain that this would fix the fault because the compressor is running most of the time and I think it should be cooling the fridge compartment.
The fridge freezer is not the type that has a duct and fan passing cold air from the freezer section through to the fridge compartment it is a "Wet Wall" system.
The rear wall of the fridge compartment (behind which I think the evaporator may be sited) doesn't seem to go very cold between 0-8C measured with a hand held infrared thermometer.
I am wondering if this is a common fault.
Most of the advice I can find on the internet relates to problems with fridge/freezers that have a ducting system between the freezer and the fridge compartment causing problems due to ice build up and defrost faults.
Helpful advice appreciated.
