Domestic 13.5 AC compressor died

I have a 2016 Forest River sandstorm with a 13.5 Dometic AC unit. Wire burned off the overheat switch on top of AC compressor. Paint on side of compressor was a bit chard as well. Looks to all been very hot.
Wondering if a new overheat switch and wire is a good first attempt?
If that fails, can I find a new sealed system to put in my housing?
Thank you in advance.
Surely I don't need to buy the whole thing when I only need the internal workings?

Thanks again

Number one, I don't think dometic sells many parts sepreate. Number two, dometic has a two year warranty on their units- take back to the dealer. Also, don't try to power your ac off of a household extension cord. The voltage drop/low voltage will cause it to overheat and lock up.

I have one for sale

If you don't get warranty service on your unit I have a ducted 13.5k BTU unit less than 200 hours of running - that I removed from my MBS. I'm in Georgia a little south of Atlanta. Asking $250.
