My son's fridge is 12 years old. The fresh food side is freezing even in the lowest temp setting.

The one thousand dollar question is: repair it or replace it?

Repair could run $100 or more even if we do the work and he will still have a 12 year old appliance (that has a 15 year life expectancy).

Replace is almost a thousand dollars, but he will have a new fridge.

Any suggestions for my son?
