I've checked on the Kenmore site, and posted this question to two of the appliance sites, but it being Sunday I thought I might get a quicker response from here. Luckily DH will be home late tonight and off tomorrow, so he can do whatever repairs are needed. I'm thinking it's a small part called the overload relay, but not sure how to go about testing, or if this makes sense.

Hard question to answer without being there and looking at it. Having neither the fan nor the compressor sounds to me like something other than the overload relay (which is a thermal limiter that would shut off the compressor). I would start with the thermostat.
