Thank you all very much!Search for "repuestuos heladeras en Flores" lots of stores on Ave. Directorio (san pedrito) subway stop...
Sadly, however, this 30+-year-old monstrosity may not be salvageable. I finally got the beast heaved out, crouched down to have a look, saw something very much like that shown in the YT video I linked above, and found the damn thing is dripping water directly on the relay. Which, you know, doesn't usually do much to improve the functioning of most electrical devices.
Yes, I unplugged it first.
Also, interestingly enough, unplugging the fridge seems to have put a stop to that flickery behavior of the bathroom light. The video above shows the compressor pulling almost 11 amps, briefly, so that would make sense, especially given the horribly effed-up nature of the electrical setup in this building.
