    The AC compressor is belt driven and sometime the AC clutch will freeze and since the belt has to constantly turn the water pump,power steering pump and alternator, So if the pulley or clutch on the AC compressor is frozen ( won't turn ) the belt will squeel and burn as its trying to spin the pulley.
