Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are quite a few things that can prevent the compressor from engaging. If these parts have truly been ruled out then that would leave the control head, ambient temperature sensor, the evaporator temperature sensor, and wiring as likely causes.

What are the pressures when the compressor is running?

40 and 200
