Outdoor unit not running

Hi, I have a Dynazone Split Room Air Conditioner. It's about 22 years old, only had to have professional service on it once....needed a new blower moter inside. Other than that it's been well maintained, ie, coils kept clean, filter kept clean, etc.
Anyway, today theres warm air blowing out of the wall unit and the outside unit isn't working. I checked power and I do have power going to the unit. Breaker connections are tight and thermostat is working properly. Is there anything else I can check or is it too old to bother with or should I call in a tech?
Thank you.

It may be as simple as the capacitor or contactor or even a broken control wire. Do you hear a humming when it trys to run? Can you spin the fan with a stick and it will start and run?

Do you have a multimeter and know how to use it?
