You do not want it to run on low freon as it will burn itself up. There is a low pressue switch that tells it not to run if the freon pressure is below a certain point. To make it run; add freon.

Why does ac compressor turn off after a few minutes on a 1991 Lincoln town car?

Most likely the freon is low, however the low pressure cutout switch could be bad. If it is the cutout switch, the a/c will probably be erratic. The switch cuts out when the low side freon pressure falls to 20 PSIG or below.
