I added capacitors on input and output but the voltage is stopping and output is not stable.How should I correct it?

Any Linear Voltage Regulator dissipates power as a function of (VIN-VOUT)*ILOAD. So if your output is 10V:
(12-10)*0.3=600mW of power dissipation. For the SOT-223 package:
The thermal rise on the die would be RthetaJA which is 59.3C/W times the power dissipation of 600mW plus the ambient temperature:
TJ = TA+Power Dissipated*RthetaJA or
TJ= 25+0.6*59.3=60.6 which would be fine.
However, if VOUT is 5V, then this changes:
The power dissipation is (12-5)*0.3 or 2.1W.
So TJ=25+2.1*59.3=149.5C which is going to trigger thermal shutdown.
Note: I used TA as 25C but actually in the application this should be the PCB ambient which could be higher. Changing to the TO-220 package would help a lot.
I hope this helps.
The device is electrically capable of supporting 1A, but thermally it depends on the voltage drop across the device and the current as described above.
For VIN=25V and VOUT=12V at 300mA, this is 3.9W. 12V to 7V at 300mA is 1.5W of power dissipation.
I think you are running into thermal shutdown.
Does this help?
