Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer.
If you're sure the compressor is getting power, first check the capacitor. If the capacitor is bad just replace, if the capacitor is good then the compressor is bad. Parts are available at this web page:

Of course you will need to be CFC certified to replace the compressor.

i'm not sure I saw a capacitor although there is a small component at the compressor where the power comes in i did take it apart and there is a small disc that resembles a battery. Would that be the capacitor?
