Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the compressor is locking up it's either due to a restriction in the system, a lack of oil, or failures of the compressors themselves. Aftermarket compressors are pretty troublesome but it wouldn't be that likely for all of them to catastrophically and in the same way.

In addition to replacing the compressors is anything else being done?
