SOURCE: Breaker keeps tripping
Your compressor could be going bad. You would need to check to amp draw on the the leads coming out of the compressor. There is a maximum rating listed on data plate. Something simple could be that your condenser the out side part of the unit is dirty. All you have to do is turn off the shut off switch out side, get a hose and some dish soap and wash the coils. Be careful with the water presssure not to bend the fins. Or some thing even a lot of techs look over is the breaker is bad.

Every air conditioner has a motor called a compressor. The compressor provides the cooling capacity for the air conditioner. If the compressor or its electrical controls are defective the compressor may try to start, fail, and create an electrical overload. If the unit does create an overload, every compressor circuit is also equipped with an overload safety switch. The safety switch is designed to protect the compressor from burning out. The safety switch will cut the power to the compressor for a certain length of time and then reset itself. When it resets it will allow the electricity to flow to the compressor once again. If the compressor then starts, the unit should function normally. If the compressor doesn't start when the overload resets, the overload will again cut the electricity to the compressor. This cycle will continue indefinitely. (Always allow three to five minutes before restarting the compressor.) If this situation is occurring, unplug the air conditioner and get help from a qualified repair technician. This problem is often fatal to the air conditioner because the cost of repair often exceeds the price of a new air conditioner.
if this helps please vote me a fix ya

Possible low voltage condition would cause that kind of a problem. To small a cord without the ability to carry and maintain the voltage would cause a voltage drop. I would test the voltage supply and make sure it is within 10% of that required for your A/C to operate properly.
