Okay, pull the unit out so you can get behind it. Remove the back lower panel to access the compressor area and condenser fan. Check and see if the fan is running and also see if the compressor is vibrating or not, plus see if the compressor is hot ,cold or warm to the touch. please post back to me with what you have found. Also note anything you have changed out part wise or have done and not mentioned in your original post. I am helping other customers so there may be a delay in responses to do not panic just wait for my reply thank you.

Fan is running. Compressor not vibrating. room temperature.
I haven't touched it but have only owned it for 4 months
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 8 months ago

Ok you likley have an inverter failure, that is the board next to the compressor. If the condenser fan is running and the compressor is not running, there is a 99% chance the inverter is bad. Here is a link to the part...CLICK HERE it will not cool if that is bad. You can test it with a volt meter if you wanted to check it, 120 volts to the main plug to the inverter and 3-6 volts to the small plug to the inverter if you have that replace the inverter.
