We have a SRS583DW samsung fridge/freezer. The only trouble

HiJA: Hi. What is your issue regarding?Customer: We have a SRS583DW samsung fridge/freezer. The only trouble we have had in the past is the ice maker. Apparently we were told it was the sensor - we chose not to replace and left the ice maker off. About six months later bump the ice on button on the front panel and the ice maker has been working for another ~7 years. I turned the ice maker off the other night and noticed walking past that it was making a buzzing noise like the water was trying to fill. The next morning found freezer not working and compressor extremely hot.JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Samsung is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: About 12 years old.JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: Yes - my husband.JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: The error code on the panel is the top of the fridge temp which indicates ice maker.
