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.

The fan is not running and the compressor is warm

OK then you may have a cold control issue, if neither are running either the unit is in defrost or the temperature control is not working. If it is in defrost it will come back on soon. If it does see if the compressor and fan come on and let me know what the temps are in the unit.
