Does anyone have an LG service bulletin they can share here for the LG linear compressor?

They go bad a lot on LG are you a tech or a homeowner?
They will replace it under warranty but you have to pay the labor and it must be done by a LG approved company.

Samsung has had issues too but LG takes the cake.
LG makes the Kenmore Elite so they have the same problems with compressor failures.
There is a class action lawsuit in the works filed in IL but don't hold your breath since another one was already dismissed in NJ.
What model fridge do you have?
