This sounds like the float mechanism has gone bad. Remove it and have a look. It may be the float or the switch on it that is bad. There is also a solenoid valve. Parts kits are available. Shut off the water first!

If the compressor is running but the unit is not cooling you may have lost the refrigerant. See if the condenser coils at the back or bottom are hot. If they are only warm then the refrigerant is low and can be recharged. Service tech should check for leak in coolant system.

Refrigerator efficiency is dependant on multiple things...
Size/type of evaporator
Size/type of condensor
Insulation used and thickness of
There have been some advances in compressor efficiency in the last twenty years but if your unit is using R-12 it would most likely have to be upgraded to R134a due to environmental regulations. Therefore, without a major redesign of your unit to include resizing the system and somehow adding insulation, updating to the newest and greatest compressor will really not gain you much in efficiency and cost as much or more than an entire new unit.
There are still units made without stainless. Unless your unit is a power hungry monster (and yours is not) I doubt a new unit would save you more than a buck a month in power savings.
I wish I could make a recommendation for you but I do not know the market well enough. I know if I were in your place I would hang on to my unit for as long as it works well and continue to save up for a higher end model (with the best warranty/service plan) and look ofr the best replacement out there.
Note: Beware of high end units that are just high priced due to looks. Most units these days are made from the lowest bidder parts (world-wide) and even if they look awsome and have high quality standards during production are subject to the "roll of the dice" due to the cheap electronics used for controls.
