I would suspect that a leak may be the problem. Put a set of gauges on the system and see if the pressure looks good. If the system pressure isn't high enough the pressure sensor will not let the compressor turn on to protect the system.

when you turn the AC on, does the compressor turn on or not? If it turns on but the vent temp. isn't getting cold, that would be a different problem. If the compressor doesn't turn on, then I would suspect that there is a leak. Most AC oil has an UV dye in it. A black light would help you locate the leak.

who did the replacement? If a shop did the work, they should check their work and see if there is a leak in the part they worked on. they might fix and replace the refrigerant under warranty.
