1987 Mercedes 300E A/C Problem

I have a 1987 Mercedes 300E. The air conditioner compressor shuts off without warning and sometimes won't come on at all. There is now power to the compressor when this happens. What would cause the power to the compressor to just stop? When the compressor is running it works great. Can anyone advise me on how to resolve this problem? Thanks

The first thing to do is check the pressure in the A/C. The system will shut off the compressor if the pressure is too low. It may be time to top off your freon charge.
