Some compressors have internal limits that will reset after cooling down.
If it does re-set find out why it tripped off.
Maybe the condenser fan is not working or there may be a voltage or capacitor problem.
Or the compressor may be shot.

Can take up to 24 hrs for the compressor to cool down and reset the thermal overload switch buried in the windings.
