Hello, the unit may be going off due to the hot weather, combined with a dirty condenser coil that then trips the high pressure cut out switch.

Tell me how hot it has been outside lately around 2pm, and about how old your air conditioner is and if it has ever had its condenser coil cleaned,

We can go from there
