Thanks for posting
The most common reason for this is low Freon pressure, possibly a small leak somewhere in the system, it sounds like the compressor is not turning on. The only thing you can do without connecting expensive equipment is to visually inspect the hoses and the pipes for leaks, check the condenser in front of the radiator for possible rock damage, get a recharge kit from an autoparts store or target/ walmart, they cost around $40 for the good ones, try adding some Freon yourself following the directions that come with the kit.
