Cost of repair will be more than the cost of the fridge

So what is a reliable fridge in that size ?
And how long would you think before this one is junk
I canít believe these only last a year
Wonder what the warranty is

In Canada there is a one year warranty. They may cover it if it is just over a year give them a call.   Frigidaire seems to be a little better.     Get a extended warranty a 5 year warranty is normally not that expensive and if you have a sealed system issue they normally replace the fridge

It could be the defrost control board that is a very common failure on whirlpool made fridges.
Try replacing it with a Supco ADC8931 Refrigerator Defrost Control Board they have them on Amazon and Ebay around $40
