Troy, I'd carry that puppy outside and put the air hose to that condenser.

Looks like that is either an Admiral or Montgomery Wards refrig.

That black thing is what we in the appliance field call a "Jelly Roll" condensor. If you try to take it apart your refrig will not work anymore, (allthough as dirty as it is it's quite surprising that it is still working. It looks really plugged up, like it's never been cleaned before).

As bad as it is, it would be best to do as exsearsguy suggested. If you don't have a compressor or just don't want to take it outside then you will need to remove the black cardboard piece between the fan and the condensor roll and with a good strong vaccuum and a condensor brush work on cleaning all the lint and dirt out.

Here's the condensor brush you will need, $5.40: CLICK HERE
