Ok try this for me. Pull the unit away from the wall so you can access the back of it. Unplug the unit for 30 seconds. Plug it back in and at the lower back of the unit is a black oval shaped thing about a little bit smaller than a basketball. That is the compressor. Feel it and see if it is vibrating. It should start to do that within a minuet of plugging it back in.
Listen for any clicks too.
Ok. Thank you.
If the compressor is running but the unit is not cooling you have a refrigerant issue.
When a unit is left for that long without being operated the seals tend to dry out. That allows the refrigerant to leak out and you have what you have now.
There is a tiny bit of oil in th eunits that is circulated with the gas that keeps the seals moist. If the unit is not operated for a long period of time the oil is not there to do its job.
You will need to contact a service that is licensed to handle refrigerants.
I am sorry but this is not a DIY repair.
