To answer you question about if its worth it?
This all depends on what is wrong with it, Keep in mind here Tech's here cannot L@@K T@uch and feel your TV, They cannot smell if there is something burnt. We are relying on you to use your eye,s ears nose and fingers to communicate your issues for a possible repair.
Get estimates from local repair guys Ultimately that is where this repair will end up. fixya only works if you have general "working" knowledge of TV repair or electronics. Can we fix it for $12.00 the answer is NO, We are not fixing nothing its actually you doing all the work while we guide you.
We give you information for a possible fix. We only can diagnose what you say and what you say is subjective and may not be the cause.
Capacitors play a huge role on how you tv reacts trust me if a capacitor gave out your tv will be acting funny or not powering on and the laundry list of issues will be taking place.
We at fixya meaning me and my fellow experts do this more or less as a public service the payment is so shortcoming for each of our answers to you. So think about the time and information we give when you do click the accept button. Try the methods others have given you.
IS it worth it? Well think about this your getting Educated, a possible fix and some experience for the price of the service so in my humble opinion it is worth every penny! Try our problem solving skills what if it was a $2 capacitor? What if it was a $12 dollar Thermal fuse wow you save $200-$600 on repair bills. Now as yourself this was it worth it?

On a refrigerator that old, something from the year 1985, I think that it may have used a mechanical timer for the defrost cycle.
A refrigerator like yours, if it keeps cold, but won't cycle through the defrost cycle or has a bad thermostat can be repaired for under $300 I would think.
Newer refrigerators use microprocessors and computerized controls.
If your refrigerator is still cold, that means the compressor is fine and the freon has not leaked out, yet.
Newer refrigerators are more efficient, though, and can pay for themselves in energy savings, not to mention having that new refrigerator 'smell.'
At my home we just junked a refrigerator from the year 1978 that was running all of the time, but wasn't cooling very well due to a bad timer, and the plastic was getting old.
We got a refrigerator from Sears to replace it, but it was an Amana brand for about $1200 on sale.
Good luck on deciding whether to dispose of or fix your refrigerator.
