I have a 49-year-old fridge along with one that about 40 years old both working just fine. The 49-year-old one had a new compressor installed about 30 years ago and other than the occasional mechanical defrost timer and fan motor, it works like a champ. Sure I may be burning a bit more power per year (about $50 more per year the last time I looked) but then I'm not spending another $1,500 every 5 years for a new fridge.
