My $2,700 Kenmore Elite by LG (serial number starts with 795) failed after 5 years and one month. Only parts are covered. Labor to replace compressor is $600-$1,500 depending on whether the evap system is also bad. New compressors are backordered two weeks because LG can’t keep up with the failures. Technician says they see 20 bad LG compressors a WEEK!  Sometimes when they do replace them, they fail again in less than 2 years. He recommended replacement but never an LG!
