Tension may be too weak and have to be adjusted or the compressor is locking up from too much freon or a bearing failure

What would cause a bearing failure? That would mean that I need a new compressor?

Yes, a new one. It can fail for many reasons but get it confirmed before doing anything

If the belt tension are good, you could have a failing harmonic balancer.

What is a failing harmonic balancer? Becuase I checked and the tension of the belt is good

The harmonic damper is incorporated into the crank pulley. Note if the belts are wobbly, especially at the crank pulley. If yes, that could mean a damper that is going bad.
