A Dead Compressor

Our refrigerator has been making funny noises for the last few months. I am meticulous about cleaning the coils and thought this was some sort of ice maker event. This week the compressor appears to have died and I was out in the yard at 7 AM building emergency food shelves in the battery dome to act as our temporary refrigeration unit. At this point we have to make a decision. Do we continue with our "Energy Star" 2000W per day fridge or do we start over with a modified chest freezer with a 200W per day load.
