A/c works for awhile then stops working

This sounds very much like your magnetic clutch dropping in and out possibly due to and electrical cut off ether in the wiring or a faulty switch on the dash board that you operate to bring in the A/C. This magnetic clutch is actually attached to the drive pulley of the a/c unit get some body to switch the a/c on and off whilst you look to see if it engages before you decide what to do about it, also check that engine oil drips have not got between the plates, if this is the case or you think it's slipping for some other reason. spay between the plates with a can of Carburettor cleaner.

Best of luck

What causes the air compressor clutch to hold back

There is a electro magnet behind the pulley. When 12v is connected, the magnet pulls the top plate to the pulley and the a/c compressor turns.

According to the mechanic the clutch magnetic plate of our mazda tribute model 2005 burned which caused affected the function of the air conditioning is this possible?

I think what your mechanic is saying is that the clutch mechanism on your A/C compressor is bad. What this is "a magnetically controlled clutch which activates the A/C compressor and allows it to work"
so without the clutch the compressor will not function as it should.

Air conditioner doesn't work blows out hot air

Does the compressor magnetic clutch operate the compressor? If so, then the coolant has probably leaked out of the system. If clutch doesn't operate the compressor, possible fuse blown, bad relay, or open winding in compressor clutch.

1998 Volvo V70 A/C Intermittent

I had exactly the same problem. When your engine is cold and off check the gap on your ac compressor with a feeler gauge, it should be between 0.3 and 0.5mm. If it is larger you need to re-shim which invloves undoing a nut on the end off the compressor and removing the clutch plate, then removing the appropriate shims (look like washers) then replace. The reason it blows warm after 10 minutes or so is because the ac compressor gets hot and the clutch gap gets too large for the electro-magnetic clutch to engage. Some people would say that you need a new compressor but all you need to do is a re-shim.
