Our LG frig is not cooling. I called the LG support they said it has past the 5 yr part/labor warranty. But the condenser is covered until 10yr. I called some local contractors, they said if compressor is the issue, they suggest to buy a new frig.
I did some tests:
- pressed test switch 1st time, internal fans seem running but only warm air,
- pressed it the second time only bottom freezer fan running.
- pressed 3rd time it went to normal state.
After running some minutes, the red LED light on the board flashed 6 times.

In the normal mode, when I opened the doors, no internal fan running. The compressor seems ok, it vibrates and the white fan spins.
Do I have compressor issue? Do you have any suggestions I should do before I junk it?
Thanks for any advise/help.

Check your owners manual again, usually its the compressor that's warrantied for 10 years, not the condenser.

Yes, if the compressor is running and its not cooling, you possibly have a faulty compressor, or a sealed system leak or restriction.

One local service company priced it $700 for labor if the compressor is covered. Will it worth it to fix?

Its up to you, the rule of thumb is if it costs half of a new refrigerator, its best to just save the repair money for the new refrigerator.
