You might be right, but I suggest you try to bleed off some freon with compressor running but not cooling. It can not get any worse, so you have nothing to loose by doing that.

Why? Gas will evaporate from oils as soon as engine warms up. We used to add gas to the oil fill cap prior to shutting the car off to make it easier to start the engine when it is really cold outside.

Then it is not a striker. If you are correct it should be an easy fix - just attach something round (like a wire or a screw) to the lid and move the latch as far back as possible. It should work.
