How to replace refrigerator compressor DIY

What do I need to know to replace my refrigerator compressor? A high-pitched whine is coming from the compressor.

The refrigerator is a a Kenmore Elite model 795.79754.904, serial 908KR00052, manufactured August 2009.

The compressor is an LG LQ69LAUM.

I'm told LG compressors do not last long, and that I was lucky to get 10 years out of this one. Is there a better brand I can install instead?

Do you have a gauge set, torches, a license for freon Knowladge to solder lies? Not a DIY job.
