Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

Unfortunately if the fans are running and the unit just hums but the compressor won't run, your compressor itself has shorted out and would need to be replaced I'm sorry to say.
