Question about Continental CE75106 Portable Air Conditioner
Is there a way to open the unit myself and try to fix it?
The liquid coolant is not supposed to be replenished. It is supposed to be sealed inside metal at all times and temperatures.
If it has escaped, you will need a brazing torch, a set of pressure gauges, a container of new freon, a license to buy the freon, a vacuum pump, some fittings to attach the gauges to the pipes, the ability to measure the quantity of freon accurately, and some education so you can avoid hurting yourself with molten metal, liquids at 40 degrees below zero, and pressures in hundreds of pounds per square inch. The tools cost nearly a thousand dollars. The license and education, I don't know the price. At least several hundred more.
Unfortunately, a short burst of cooling followed by poor performance is usually caused by the freon having partially leaked out.
The best you can hope for is an electrical problem. Those are cheaper and easier to repair, if you have voltage and amperage meters and know how to use them.
