I has a similar problem with mine (4 years old, noisy, tripped the breaker, but also not cooling properly) and the cooling fan blade had separated from the fan motor. You can SEE the fan at the back of the freezer behind the slotted panel. If that's the problem, it's easier to relace the fan than it is to change the toilet paper roll. Empty the freezer, unsnap the plastic cover, unplug the fan motor, unscrew it, and replace. Just turn off the fridge first.

Tripping a circuit breaker (by any device) is an issue that is not easily (safely) addressed on-line. Besides an actual problem with the device in question, one must consider: a) Too many high current devices already on the circuit (toasters, microwaves, washing machines, etc.) that contribute/cause the issue. b) A circuit breaker that trips much more easily than it should (from tripping too much - common problem), and should be replaced.
c) The device in question needs the compressor replaced (very rare in a two-year old device), but can become damaged during shipment - on it's side. d) Damaged sub-component (eg. one of the fans), probably easily found by locating the source of the noise.

I hope you unplugged your unit or tripped the breaker. If they are bright red then you have an electrical short that should have tripped the breaker a long time before they turned red hot.

The motor is constantly running and so so noisy and the outsides of the freezer get extremely hot

Unit is low on gas. You may be able to have it regassed but it will probably need to be done again at some time in the future as there must be a leak somewhere in the gas circuit.

Check to make sure the fan is not hitting anything, if the fan looks good then on the back oof the unit is a relay, check that and make sure all is well. If both check out ok then I would get to work on the compressor and make sure it is not HOT to the touch and that it is operating correctly.

Re; hotpoint refrigerator

probably the blades are hitting something , slide the fridge out and inspect, as far as it running all the time, many fridges run a lot more often than you think. the fan being noisy is drawing your attention to it more now.
