Could be low on refrigerant, the fan isn't working, the condenser is clogged or dirty. Start by making sure the fan works and the condenser isn't fully of leaves and dirt. If so you can clean it out with some degreaser and a water hose spraying from the inside out.

Thanks Alex, I’ve checked the Freon and put some in but this done in the morning and blew cold air then later that day when it got hot outside the compressor wouldn’t start up and the gauge said it had too much Freon?
