Where exactly is the leak... sounds like you need to have somebody that does A/C deal with your repair..

Can you post picture of leaking item ? Or a couple to lead in to location and of the leak

Things under pressure blowing up can injure you in bad ways..

If someome topped up your a/c system, they may have overfilled the system. There is a pressure release valve in the a/c compressor, when the compressor kicks in, the pressure builds, excess pressure and refrigerant is blown out through this valve. Have the system emptied and filled by an authorised a/c specialist.
