Heat Pump wont run, but Blower fan runs

I have a combined gas furnace/heat pump. It is an older system
(maybe 1980s). When I turn the T-stat on to cool, the furnace blower starts to run, but the outside unit doesn't run.

The heat pump is a GE Executive Weathertron

Model #: BWR724A100A1

The furnace is a Bryant

Model# 395CAV036075

I have lived in this house for 8 years and have been nearly trouble-free with heating cooling issues(replaced transformer in furnace a few years ago).

I pulled the cover off of the electrical panel on the heat pump and can here a faint hum but that is all. There are three capacitors and none of them are leaking fluid or 'bulging'.

I did do some searching on the internet for solutions, but have not found one as of yet. Does anyone have any insight on what I should look for next?

Thanks in advance

Guessing the hum is the contactor pulled in. Check the breakers or fuses.
