Question The Penguin II Quiz

My 7 year old Dometic Penguin II has stopped working. Before it stopped it began emitting a low hum about 3 seconds duration, for a few hours, then went completely Tango Uniform.
The fan still works.

Is this a simple repair? What is the likelyhood it is:

1. the start/run capacitor on the compressor,
2. the control board,
3. total replacement.

Thanks for your replies.

Check the cap for "expansion"... Or sign of leakage. Might be a good time to put a Hot Start kit too
