Often the compressor seals leak only when a low area on the shaft passes the damaged seal arear while the unit is turning, but with nitrogen in the system preventing the unit from running, the shaft is not moving. Boosting the pressure beyond the normal running pressures would also tend to "push" the compressor seals more than normal, also slowing or stopping the leaks.
Exelant point. Just another lesson I learned from you JFP
Hope for you Rene, that fixing the compressor will solve the problem for you.
Much easier then replacing the evaporator.
