How old is this Kenmore 970-418105 Fridge?

Sears Kenmore
6-10 years
I have to replace this fridge, as it's leaking and not cooling according to two repairmen who said it is not worth fixing. I need a replacement before the new owners of my home take over. It must be equivalent or newer. I have both the model and serial number and was wondering if someone could point me in the direction of the year of manufacturing? That way if I buy second hand, clearance, or refurbished in my budget - I will know that what I am buying is not older than the broken one. Thank you!

MODEL: Kenmore 970-418105

SERIAL: BA61312639

Actually the serial number indicates it could have been manufactured March of 1996 or 2006 or 2016 by Electrolux. It's parts manual is dated 12/05 so I would assume the March of 2006 is most likely its manufacturing date.
