Hi,

It leaks from the little valve inside the port hole. Its the same as a tire valve and if it gets even just a real small piece of debris in there it wont spring up enough and seal. Usually you would have to replace it (it just unscrews with a little adapter) but you will loose all the freon you just put in. sometimes you can use a little screwdriver and snap the little valve and it will spray out some freon and possible clean the valve off. If it still leaks replace the valve. any parts store carries them and the adapter to use for about 5 bucks.
