Our OEM fridge is still operational, at least on 110.. (31 years old) someone messed up the controls bad with a pair of pliers, and we can't switch it to LP, which is why we are changing. As far as how long they last, my guess is, no pat answer, just like any other appliance.
Take for example our washing machine.. internet searches tells me a lot of people with the same model, replaced their washer at "about" 5 years because of bearing failure.(1st generation HE front loader) At 10 years, we replaced... our bearings. If I had paid for the repair, I probably would have replaced the washer, but I did it myself for $15 in parts. But, and the point is, ours "skewed" the numbers, even without me fixing it. So it makes it hard to figure how long any one will last.
