Greetings all!

I inherited my wife's grandmothers 1948 fridge about five or six years ago, it's been working pretty well until the beginning of this summer.  Over the course of the last two months it's been getting warmer and warmer inside.  I can hear *something* squirting its way through the evaporator but the old gal is just not getting cold at all anymore and the compressor runs constantly.  Even when it did work, ice would only accumulate right where the high side enters, so am I to suspect a veeery slow freon leak?

What to do with this thing?  The problem is its been in the family since it was bought new, only been moved three times in its life!  She's also in MINTY condition, so I really want to get her fixed!
