The compressor is still under warranty.

Must be older then as the compressor would be covered for at least five years.

One (1) year Parts and Labor on Refrigerator
Five (5) years Parts and Labor on sealed Refrigeration system only*
Ten (10) years Parts and Five (5) years Labor on Digital Inverter Compressor
(*Compressor, evaporator, condenser, drier, connecting tubing)

Why not call a Samsung repair facility and ask if it's under warranty? If, not- CR's top recommendations for top-freezer models are Frigidaire, followed by a couple Samsungs and an LG. So, as you can see, YMMV. I have a couple of friends who repair appliances (just about all brands). I suggest you call an independent repair facility or two and ask for a recommendation. It's surprising what these techs know.

Not sure on samsung, LG has same type of compressor. LG wants a receipt for warranty repair. Told them to suck an egg only to find out Samsung has same type of compressor. AHHHHHHHHHHHHH....
I ended up with a cheap top freezer until I figure out what I want. So far it's kept the wife from leaving pork chops in the freezer buried for 12 months...LG lowered their compressor warranty from 10 to 5yrs from what I read..

For French door fridges LG is the highest rated by CR overall and tied with Kenmore in reliability. LG probably makes the Kenmore fridges.
