Our old fridge got stuck in the defrost cycle (I think something fried the control circuit) and ruined most of the food. We did not have a real budget for a new fridge, but we had to get one anyways.

The old fridge was old, manufactured in 2002. My dad and I are going to take it to Lowe's (where we got the new fridge) so it can be safely disposed of/recycled.

We put the food that wasn't ruined in the Garage (it is below zero here currently) so it would stay cold. It is now in the new fridge, which works.

I looked up the fridge model, and people who bought it had it for about six years before it got stuck in the defrost cycle, so it is obviously planned obsolescence (which, AFAIK, is illegal in the United States).
Getting information off the Internet is like taking a drink from a fire hydrant.
