This answer was rated:

whirlpool fridge/freezer (at least 18 years old) just stopped working. Any point in having someone look at it?
Does the fridge make any sounds at all ?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

no sound

Is the fan inside the freezer working and how warm is the inside of the freezer ?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Not aware there is a fan inside the freezer. Nothing is working except the light in the fridge section, and the warning noise when freezer door left open

Ok from what you have told me it sounds like the thermostat has failed nd needs to replaced. But having said that your fridge is almost at the end of its life expectancy so you would have to decide if you want to invest money into it..

If replacing the stat will fix it, I will replace the stat. But is replacing the stat sure to fix it, or could it be something else?

From what you have told me it is the problem.
