Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are many things that can cause the a/c to stop working and it will take some testing to determine what is going on. The problem could be the compressor clutch coil itself, the control head, wiring, a pressure switch/sensor or evaporator temperature sensor issue.

Other than charge the system has any testing been done?
