Picked up one (well, 2 actually but that's a diff story) of these off CL: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Magic-Chef-4-3-cu-ft-Mini-Refrigerator-in-Stainless-Look-HVDR430SE/205429674

Dumbly didn't test when I picked it up, but had no reason to question the guy who said it worked. Not the scammer type. Pretty sure I screwed it up somehow.

Symptom: Does not cool, I think at all. Sounds like compressor is running, no clicks when I plug it in. Sounds like it's running like normal, but doesn't cool. Compressor is hot af to the touch after running for a while.

What I did:
Picked it up, had it on it's back in my hatchback.
It stayed in my car like that for like 4-5 days bc I'm lazy.
Pulled it out and sat it upright on my back deck for another 3-4 days bc I'm lazy.
Plug it in and it ran for 24 hours or so bc it sounded like it was working fine, then I unplugged it when I realized it wasn't working.

Help me TWW. You're my only hope.

Probably broke the coil when you had it on its back. I'd see if you notice a crack.

^^ naw the coils etc are under a panel. Only a bit of the compressor sticks out at the bottom.

could be a few different things. hard to tell without hooking up a set of gauges and seeing what the pressures are doing.
