Hi let me see if I can help... we need to know that the compressor is being called on to work.. if you have a multimeter you can check for voltage at the relay for the compressor... if you have voltage at the relay coil but the relay is not switching...its the relay... if the relay switches and you have voltage at the compressor but the compressor wont run...its the compressor...

If you have no experience with electrical.... I would suggest contacting your repair company.... as you can cause yourself and the unit death or severe harm.

Let me know what you find...
