1996 Ford Contour Question: my compressor is not turning, could it be a plug, a fuse, or does it need replacing?

Take you car back to the place that recharged your system and have them diagnose the issue. Chances are, your a/c system has a leak, the freon they just put in has leaked out resulting in the compressor not turning on (safety feature).
