Welcome to the forums.

Was it blowing cold air and mist ?

With a window unit the condensate pan may have been overfull. Sometimes you'll hear the fan slinging the water around. Not uncommon and usually not harmful to unit.

Normally the condensate doesn't make it indoors but I have seen it happen before.

Now it only blows warm air.... do you hear the compressor start up ? Could take up to five minutes to start.

I wonder if you happened upon it while it was leaking refrigerant...

Yes it did blow mist and clod air and, I did hear the sound of wate could this help pinpoint the leak in the system,I just order a can of Pro seal and a Bullet piercing valve and some Freon. Wednesday my vacuum pump should arrive.

Wait a minute Ray. Let's not jump to conclusions.

You said it was blowing cold air and mist...... and you heard water hitting the condensor fan. That does not indicate any type of freon leak. That sounds like a normal running air conditioner with too much condensate water..... perhaps from not being properly pitched towards the outside.

If your unit was low on charge the compressor would still try to run....... is it ?

I do not here the compressor engaging and the pitch is perfectly level, should I change the pitch.
