Here is a prior answer to a similar question which might help -


http://answers.angieslist.com/How-cos...


While in a low-cost area or with rebuilt compressor (which I would not recommend) you might get it for $300 plus range, but more likely around $500 range including gas refill if needed. (New compressor is around $100-150 retail, likely $150-200 vendor price)


Call around to several Appliance Repair - Large vendors to aak what they would charge for your particular model. Also - if they come out to diagnose, then order part and come back another day to install when it comes in or after they go to the shop to pick it up, will normally cost $75-100 more than if they just order the part and come when it arrives. BUT - that assumes you are sure that is the part that is needed.


How do you know it is a compressor failure, unless you already had a tech out to look at it, in which case you should have one quote in hand already? If not already diagnosed, failure to cool could be due to dirty evaporator coil, clogged or failed cooling fan, failed circulating fan (usually in the back of the freezer compartment), failed door seal, misaligned door causing seal misalignment and cold air leakage, failed compressor starter condensor/relay, loss of refrigerant from the system, etc - lots of possible causes for loss of cooling, assuming that is your issue. So if has not been diagnosed yet, that is your starting point - though if compressor is not running at all, pretty much narrows it down to electrical (or electronic if electronic reefer) issue, starter relay/condensor, or compressor failure.
