You are going to have to get the HVAC system scanned for codes. It has sensed a failure and shut down to protect the system. It could very well be that your condensor fan failed and caused high head pressures so the system shut down to avoid major damage. But there will be codes stored that will point to the failure. Once the repair is complete and codes cleared the system should restart.
