Warm Air From AC System on Mazda CX-7

Problem Description and Possible Solution

The AC compressor may fail causing the AC system to blow warm air, smoke may also appear from the engine. A failed AC compressor will require replacement. Mazda has extended the warranty on these compressors to 5 year or 60K mikes. If these conditions are noted our technicians recommend to turn the AC system off and have it inspected as soon as possible.

Ac blows very cold and then it stops for several days and start again blowing very cold. What can it be?
It blows cold some times and some times it dont.
compessor locked up and it started smoking like burning rubber.
Ac blow warm air. It makes a loud raddling noise from under the hood of the car when on.
A/c just stopped working and blowing warm air!!
Same thing happened in 2010. Now it's happened again in 2015 and Mazda is not covering it. Warranty lasts 12k or 12 months. Just prepare to buy a compressor every 4-5 years or sell it. PCM recall in 2014 after changing out in 2011. And now EGR needs replacing only months after. I'm done with Mazda vehicles.
made alot of noise and it got worse
My air stared blowing hot air , year before it was blowing hot air . Mazda in Lake Charles, LA fixe the air . about 10 days ago it was blowing cold air , after I stopped the car for about 1 hr it was blowing hot air . Mazda inLake Charles want $745 for new compressor , but my warranty expired .
it began to start blowing warm air slowly. In the next day it went to not blowing any cold air no matter how high i set the fan.
Ac compressor failed
Smoke from under hood while driving on freeway
Keep loosing refrigerant even with sealers. Mazda wanted 1200$CA. Not done repairs so far.
Driving on the freeway when smoke started coming out from under the hood. Now, whenever i turn on the air, the whole car shakes.
not engageing at all . had it checked to confirm compressor broken
Heard noise from under the hood got a stinky smell from the engine compartment smoke it did quit after a short period of time but the compressor clutch looks to be fried
they was smoke coming from the engine, and i turned the ac off, and since then theres no smoke
AC stopped working, we could hear a hissing noise from under the hood; the car runs fine otherwise. We have not gotten it fixed yet.
AC compressor had to be replaced...thermostat replaced...check engine light came on, rpm started going crazy from 1000 to 3000 rpm while accelerating, car was losing power, thankfully able to turn into a repair shop. believe it's the turbocharger.
Same thing happens to my car but mine is a 2009. AC works when it wants to and when it doesn't it blows warm air. No smoke so far.
