I bought this fridge used about 2 years ago, so it was a gamble since I didn't actually know how old it was. Is there a way to tell from the model # how old this fridge is before I call a repairman only to be told the compressor is shot? And where is the model # located?

NEED TO CHECK IF THE DEFROSTER IS WORKING, coils will freeze up and this can cause the Freon to restrict oil flow back to the compressor causing a hard fail, do a defrost, take all the stuff out of it and put in cooler, take a fan and prop door open and fan blowing, this process can take 8-1o hrs or more, taking the coil/fan cover off speeds the process and gives you a visual of the coils and heater/defrost element if it is a metal element and the coils are free of any ice use a spray bottle and spray the heating element to see if it's stuck on and it needs a new timer
All the fans must be functioning and can use regular service with this stuff it can save you thousands of dollars over the years.
let me know how it works? need more help, just ask.

If it has fan to deliver cold air, and it is not working, cold air is stuck on the begining. So your fan could be dead. And I suppose, that compressor is running all the time. Even compressor could stert freezing if fan does not deliver cold air in fridge. The other option is, that there is not enough gas in the compressor. In this case compressor vould not be freezing, but line, going out of compressor has to be hot, if it is not, there is no gas.
You have one of two problems going on. Your fan is spinning at hitting the sides. Or your compressor is shot which seems to be more the problem and even though it is cold the humming sound is a warning for you that the compressor is shot and it is more affordable to replace the fridge then the compressor. Sometimes compressor can cost more then the fridge.
have actually been having the same problem. We have a Maytag MTB2156GEQ
and it hasn't been cooling well at all lately. Temp in the fridge is
about 52 degrees even on the highest setting. The freezer seems to be
fine. I pulled off the back panel and vacuumed out the condensor coil
and everything else under there. I then pulled out the control panel on
the ceiling of the fridge. The channel between the freezer and fridge
was almost completely blocked with ice. I cleaned it out by taking out
the back panel of the freezer and pouring hot water down through the
hole until it was clear. that seem fix the issue.
