I'm gonna throw this into the pot, just in case...
Few years ago my AC started quitting when ambient exceeded 90 F, and
the failure temperature gradually dropped with time (months). AC
would start cooling just fine, compressor would not restart
after cycling off. Problem turned out to be wear in the compressor
clutch, giving excessive plate-to-plate gap, and clutch coil magnetic
field couldn't flex plate enough to engage clutch. Altering shim
pack that sets plate gap fixed it.
Gave me a fit figuring what might be wrong because the failure temp.
was so consistent.
