have you checked the refrigerant levels? the compressor will turn off if the pressure is too low

heat equals pressure pressure equals a/c not working check your condenser fan and make sure it's working check your freon levels to make sure your a/c compressor didn't purge freon out and if it did purge you have to replace the valve

Likely the thermal protector doing its job, something causing it to activate due to getting too hot.

Agreed^ there is a switch that shuts down the a/c. You gave a leak somewhere in the system. Go to an a/c specialist and they can track down the leak, vac the system and refill
