Hello,

 

To check the balance click on the Billing tab and verify if you are close to zero.

There is a funny situation that happens often in Adwords.

If your account runs out of funds - completely - then you get a warning message to say that your ads are not running.

However, if there are a couple of cents left in the account you get no message. Google will try and give you impressions that will cost the couple of cents... so way down the pages, or on some strange keyword matches, or they will simply not be able to give you any impressions with the funds you have available - so you end up in this kind of limbo - the account isn't stopped, but nothing is happening.

As Adrian suggests, you need to look at your billing tab - you'll probably find that this is what is happening with you.

I have only one addition to the conclusion that your balance is exhausted. It can happen that AdWords grants you in the billing tab some money from invalid clicks that were discovered later, but that funding will be too little to sustain a day of advertising. I never saw in my account more that 2-3 $ added to the balance for invalid clicks.
