You don't mention a year or model - and they have changed quite a bit over the years. The older models have 3 issues that come to my mind - a safety cut of switch on the dryer (if it is full and this is cutting out the switch is the problem); an electrical switch which is activated by the vacuum door (either a bad vacuum motor or switch) and the thermostat which turns the compressor on when warm and off when too cold.

The newer ones have all that and climate control - fancier thermostat really that also controls heat and the fan speed. In general I believe they would just replace this module.

But really you need someone familiar with your car's AC to diagnose and repair it properly - do it soon or you will pay all this money to have working AC in the winter.
