fridges/freezers have a defrost cycle. if this is not working the coils freeze up and ice over, then nothing cools anymore.
Empty both sides, unplug the fridge, leave all doors open for a day. if there is water on the bottom of the freezer and now it will work (for a while), there is your problem, no auto de-icing.

yes, compressors wear over time but usually last 10 - 20 years +, but there are always premature failures. A fridge working in a very hot climate also works harder.

there is a switch somewhere in the door frame, typically a little triangle which you can push in by hand and then the light should go out. If it does not, then the switch is bad.
If you can't find the switch, put your kid inside the fridge and close door to see if the light goes out, hehe

It could be many things, also the gas inside, before anything see first if the fridge has any hall anywhere. Hope this helps

Evaporator coils should have uniform frost pattern over whole coil. If there is a block of ice only at top, your unit most likely has a freon leak and is low on freon. If whole evaporator coil is a block of ice, then it’s a defrost problem.

Nothing about replacing water valve that I know would affect compressor unless you inadvertently unplugged something in the process

Depends on where unit is located. Is it inside home, or outside, or in garage?

Defrost water is not draining into the evap tray, possibly because the drain tube is clogged.

Is the 8 degrees centigrade? If yes check the freezer fan or for frost at back of freezer...and give me a holler.

That is not a reliable method to test a compressor. The compressor needs a start capacitor to operate and that is probably what has failed.
