The only way I would buy it is if You can have him unplug it and leave the door open for at least 24 hours. Then plug it in. If it stays cold the first day or so it is a defrost problem and can be cheaply fixed. You could get lucky and have it be a start relay but I wouldn't take a chance. If the compressor is running and still not cooling I wouldn't take it if he gave it to me. Freon leaks and compressors usually are not worth fixing. You don't have the training, certification, or tools to work on the sealed system. The only other solution is if there is a tech school in your area. Sometimes they will fix things as a training exercise for only the cost of parts. You usually have to deliver and pick up the fridge.

Sir the problem of your tv is the vertical section it is fixable but you should be handy and know all the parts of electronic this vertical IC is attache to a small aluminum plate it is the heat sink, try to look for loosed or cold solder you will see this cold solder in the solder part of the PCB but be sure to unplug the unit before opening it, and also look for bulging capacitor. ekcnoel_9.jpeg
this is the cold solder or loosed solder it is much better if you use a magnifying glass to identify the cold solder. ekcnoel_11.gif
this is the picture of bulging capacitor. Or you try to contact a technician to do it for you and save you from stress good day and best regards.
