If you are experiencing refrigerant leaks in your air conditioning unit, it is best not to try and handle this type of maintenance by yourself. Simply getting new or used replacement parts is not the answer; it takes calibration and testing to properly maintain coolant or refrigerant.
There are also a host of regulations that govern coolant, how it is used and how it may be disposed of. Call your local appliance parts and service center to get a quote on this type of repairs. As always, do a spot check first, to make sure you don't have a lesser problem. If your Emerson air conditioner is only leaking water, for example, you can easily fix this by cleaning the drain pan and properly leveling the air conditioner. Do a full inspection before calling in the pros!
