The best answer is to get an HVAC tech to check it out. Without knowing anything else, and assuming the compressor starts, runs briefly and then shuts down I'd guess a limit switch (high or low) is being tripped indicating a refrigerant charge problem. It is also possible there is an issue with the temperature sensor. Regardless you'll need a professional to make a proper determination. If it's the refrigerant charge the tech will know how to properly charge the unit and determine if/where there is a leak.
Good luck!

At night its shuts down when the therm is satisfied,but trys to restart right away and when it does start it shuts down right away and just keeps doing this

The thermostat has a differential built into the temperature sensing operation. The differential is normally a degree or more. If the stat shuts down at 72 degrees it should not start the unit again until the temperature in the room reaches 73. If the AC runs and cools properly until it shuts down, I would check the thermostat. The AC can not restart immediately after it shuts off because the pressures in the system are too high at the compressor. It takes a few minutes for the pressures equalize allowing the compressor to start. If the stat tells the unit to start under high pressure, the compressor will shut down on overload. It will start and run after the pressure falls enough for the compressor motor to run.

Mitsubishi ac keeps on turning itself off

If the compressor overheats, the clixon circuit will shut off the power to the motor to prevent damage. Then when it cools it will close the circuit and the compressor will again run to only shut down again.
The suction line going to the compressor should be cold - the cold gas returning to unit cools the hermetically sealed motor. If that line is hot you may be low on refrigerant.

Dehumidifier keeps shutting down already cleaned air filter and emptied bucket

Your Dehumidifier may have a low pressure switch or a compressor hi temperature switch, if the system is low in freon it will shut the system off to keep from over heating the compressor.

Compressor keeps shutting down and inside fan blows cold air. This is a goodman GPH1342H21A.

Hi, This must be a heat-pump if you are using the outdoor unit for heat. There are a lot of things that will cause this compressor to shut down. Does it shut down and come right back on, or does it stay off for some time before it restarts again? This will help in solving this problem if I know. If you are inclined to do this, pull off the compressor panel and when it shuts off carefully touch the top as it could be hot, and tell me if it is very hot? Try and time it to see how long it takes to come back on. If it goes off on internal over load, it could take some time. Try and set your thermostat to emergency heat and you should have heat strips that will come on to keep you warm. Do the compressor check for me and tell me how hot it is and how long in between cycles. I will be waiting for a reply.
PS do the check before you turn the stat to E.Heat.

The compressor itself sound like it is bad. You might see what it cost to repair it. It might be cheaper to get another one...keep in mind if you do a lot of work with it that a 2 stage compressor will cool better and you won't have this type of problem again.

Most Likely Low on Freon. Low Pressure switch shuts That Compressor Off.
