This may be a bigger issue than you want to tackle alone, generally speaking the coil will have to be ordered from a dealer, as most wholesalers will not sell to the general public. Further, this will require brazing the new coil in, evacuating the system, installing a dryer and recharging.

Hi, all I can say it had to be a poor weld from the factory to fail like that. If the weld joint is easy to get to, you shouldn't have to replace the condenser coil. You will need oxy/act. torches and sil-phos or silver solder with at least 15% in it. If you can do this yourself, you will need the torch, a vac pump, and the skills to braze, to evacuate the system for around 45 minutes, and the gauges to charge it. If its a new unit with the new R-410a, you will need the gauges for that freon due to the high pressures. If its the R-22, you need just the regular type. If the joint is right at the condenser coil, you can remove some of the fins in that area to give you more room. It might appear to be aluminum, but its copper to copper and you should have no problems welding it. Do not use JB weld or any type of epoxy as you are wasting time and money, it will not hold!! This is high pressure in the condenser, and no patch other then a braze will hold. If you heat the area where it came apart, use channel locks to push the copper together. You may need to put a 1/2" coupling over the joint. If you feel you cant get excess to the equipment to do this, you will have to call out someone that has the equipment. If you are able to do this, great. The data plate will tell you the amount of freon to put in. I would weigh the charge in after I made sure the unit holds a vac. If it doesn't, its still leaking. Keep me posted on this and I will help as much as I can from here.
Best of Luck,
