Don,
Thanks for responding, I'm not sure how old the compressor is or why it shut down probably due to the oil leaking. I ultimately was trying to find an authorized technician for the compressor
Technician: Don, Mechanic replied 4 months ago

Hi there

some of these old compressors have a murphy switch on them

which would shut down the compressor if the oil was low it would be a sight glass with hi and low written on it

how low was t he oil when the unit shut off ?

i can look for a technician for you but need to know your area if you like

or we can continue here if you want ?

Don
