2 quick questions:

1. Is the compressor running in back? (remove rear cover and check)
2. Is the fan running  next to the compressor?

The fan is running, as for the compressor, it is quite warm, and silent, so im assuming it isnt running?

Get that relay off the compressor and test it. Here is a link to the exact relay you need if it is indeed the relay:
Relay
If that relay smells burnt or has a burnt place on it or sounds like a salt shaker it is bad.
