if you can verify that the compressor motor is actually turning, then the problem is either a freon leak or a worn out compressor. if it is not turning, then the problem is either a damaged motor or motor is not getting voltage--need testing with meter to determine why. cheaper in long run to buy a new unit if bad compressor or motor or freon fill, but a fill may be only temporary if leak persists.

possible that the cooling fins have frosted over...this happens when a cold surface appears in a humid room that does not have enough heat to prevent the freeze-up on the fins. If you look at the fins (above the water bucket), you may see the frost. One solution is to turn up heat in room, followed by placing a fan to blow air through fins if still frosted. If you do not have a frost problem, then ensure compressor is running. If comp is running, then return dead unit.

check the drain tube for blockage, maybe run a small rubber hose to clear out blockage so condensation can drain freely. Worth a try worked for me
