Reads like one of the 2 pressure switches is shutting off compressor voltage.
This can be because system needs a recharge of refrigerant(low pressure) OR, it could be the Condenser in front of the radiator isn't cooling as it should(high pressure).
Compressor pulls in refrigerant from the low side, if there isn't enough then pressure gets too low.
Compressing refrigerant heats it up, and of course, increases it's pressure, condenser cools it which reduces the pressure on the high pressure side.
Check condenser, make sure it is clean, cooling fins can get clogged with road debris.
If it has an electric fan make sure it is coming on, if it isn't being cooled then pressure stays too high.
There are several DIYs on the internet on how to recharge A/C systems, watch the videos and read the info, then decide if it is something you should try, I take mine to a shop, lol.
And as always it might not be either of the above, diagnosing any problem remotely is a guess.
