Improving the air flow behind the unit should help. Without some air flow to remove the heat the unit will be very inefficient. Here is a link to a short summary of how the absorption-style fridges work:

While camping in Florida noticed several campers with some kind of sun awning over the refrigerator vents. I asked and some campers stated they had better cooling if the fins were in the shade. Makes sense to me but did not need it as we were in the shade.

We also had a factory built in fan on our refrigerator.
