First you need to find out what is causing the high head presser. First check the filters make sure there clean. Next check the condenser coil to make sure it is not dirty. Next check the condenser fan to make sure it is not dropping out. if this is all good then you will have to look for a internal restriction rather it is a stopped up dryer to a bad TXV valve. this should be done by a refrigeration mechanic.
