either there is an open safety in the compressor control circuit, bad board, bad start capacitor or bad compressor.
It will take troubleshooting the control circuit, checking microfarads of capacitor and ohming the compressor windings.
Can you perform these troubleshooting tasks?

I can take nuts and bolts off and identify parts. I'm not much of an electrician

It ran well has had very little use. just stopped cooling
Expert:  Billy replied 2 years ago.
The easiest items are to clean coils and make sure fans rotate...after that we would need data on electrical you see these are not simple straight forward units.
I am afraid to progress would require volt and microfarad information
