Hello, there condenser coil that is fed from the compressor with hot gas, it is most likely clogged with dirt, causing the compressor to over heat and go off on its heat sensitive overload switch. You can clean the condenser with a vacuum cleaner.

The condenser coil is like a small car radiator with a fan blowing air across it, or a bunch of small tubes that look like a squashed bird cage... look that over.

The compressor and condenser are accessible from the back side of the unit near the bottom.

We can go from there.
