It wasnt even plugged in...I was moving it! The copper tube was a tiny little 4 inch long tube that was crimped and inch from the end and sottered closed and attached to a nub on the other side that rn to the compressor. Think it was the fill line?????

You will need to fix the leak, put a service valve on the 5/16 tubing and suck the system down with a vacumm pump, then re-charge with R148A refrigerant. Usually this will work, unless a lot of compressor oil spilled out, but skipping the vacumm is not a good idea.
