A/C Wall until not blowing cold air now

I have a new Frigidaire Wall until AC/Heating unit. It had been working fine until today. A friend came to seal up the area around the unit. He used spray foam.
Everything is sealed up tight.
While he was doing it, he said that he poured water out of the unit and some went back into the unit. We heard a big "wobble" sound. Within minutes, we noticed the unit was running as usual, but the air was not cold that was coming out.
My question is could the water that went back inside the unit have done something bad?
Could he have sprayed foam inside of the unit by accident and something is blocked?
The fact that it isn't draining much water now and the appliance seemed to be tilting into the room now have a lot or a little to do with my problem?

I am desperate. This was very expensive and I am hoping it is a small problem.
Thank you so much for any help.

Welcome to the forums.

The problem with spray foam is that it expands a lot and sometimes gets into places it shouldn't.

I'm a little confused about the pouring of the water. Where was this water.......in the drip pan ?
....and how did he pour it if the unit was mounted ?


ON EDIT: Is this a basic thru-the-wall unit or a split unit.

I think the water must have been from the drip pan.
I am not sure about it being a split unit or not. How can I tell?
Thank you
