when the freon is released from the unit,you have to repair the leak,pull a vacumm to rid any moisture in system then refill with freon,if you dont have the equipment,it would be cheaper to just replace the unit

SOURCE: air conditioner needs freon
If the system runs you will first need to add freon to the system (make sure it the right freon) Just enough to find leak. After you find leak and repair evacuate the entire system and weigh in charge. Hope this helps.

Sounds like a leak to me - if you have a set of guages available (know anyone working in the refrigeration field???) you could tell this for certain. Otherwise, try running it when it cools down outside and see what happens. Take a stick thermometer, and put it in between the fins on the INSIDE condenser coil. If they get cooler, but not down to about 50 degrees, then you are low on refrigerant.

I would not worry about the R-22 gas part. First, you do not have to put gas in an A/C unless there is a leak. The A/C gas is not like propane that you have to keep refilling because it gets used up. A/C gas circulates in a closed system and years can pass before you may even need some. Take for example the R-12, it was fhased out in 1994 and it is still available (for technicians only) 16 yrs. later.
So if you like the unit and the $$, get it.
Don't forget to rate this post. Good Luck!!

Testimonial: "Thanks for the advise. You made a reasonable point about not needing to replace the refrigerant for years."
