How old of a unit? Probably is too hot in the garage for it. Get a remote reading thermometer, so you can see the temp of the garage from the house.

How long has it been since the coils under the unit have been vacuumed out?

If they are full of pet hair and dust the unit will not operate to full potential and the life of the compressor will be shortened.

If it is a upright, there are no coils on the bottom.

Self-defrosting freezers have a set of coils and a cooling fan under the freezer that need to be cleaned at least once a year. The coils may look like a grate or like a wide radiator.
