LG LFXS29766S has no cooling at all. Compressor is running and is only luke-warm to the touch - not hot like I feel on a working fridge. Do I assume sealed system failure and junk this thing, or is there anything I can check? Thanks!

If the compressor is running and there is no frost on the evaporator coils there's a sealed system problem. The sealed system consists of the compressor, condenser, evaporator, heat exchanger, filter/drier and refrigerant. Common problems with a sealed system are bad compressors, refrigerant leaks, and system restrictions. Sealed system repair costs will often exceed the machines value.

Check your owners manual warranty, some models have a 5 yr. sealed system parts and labor warranty.
