Why wouldn't the AC compressor turn?

The most likely reason the compressor is not coming on is because you are low on freon. The low pressure switch will keep the compressor from cycling on because damage to your compressor would result. You can jumper across the low presure switch with the engine running and A/C turned on, ( for short time only) this will provide you with question is my compressor clutch good, or am I just low on freon. The AC compressor relay switch may need to be replaced
