Default Repairing a DeLonghi "Pinguino" portable air conditioner

I have a DeLonghi "Pinguino" portable air conditioner that blows air
but does not cool.

Any guesses as to what is wrong?

Are these air conditioners worth fixing?

Thanks

TMT

Thermostat, compressor, are the two most likely

Probably not if it is the compressor. Fix may cost more than a new unit.

Any idea as to how to determine which one it is?

Would I short across the thermostat to see if the compressor would
start?
