Hotpoint RLA36 larder fridge issue

I have a 12 year old Hotpoint RLA36 larder fridge that freezes anything close to the back interior wall.
The door seal looks intact & the drain hole isn't blocked. It's set to Temp 3 (Normal) but if I lower it, it doesn't get cold enough. I don't use it to chill warm food.
I feel the air coming from above it is much warmer than it used to be, but perhaps that's just the hot weather. Should I pull it out & dust it?
Perhaps it's time to change it & I'd buy another as it's a decent size, but before I spend £230 on a replacement, am I missing anything?
Thanks, Paul
