You probably need some refrigerant added. There probably is a leak in the system that caused the lack of refrigerant. Get the leak fixed and add refrigerant before you blow your compressor too. Or get a new fridge.

The condersor coil will be very warm to hot..not so much so it will burn you, yet very warm..the things that will make it very overly warm is if its clogged with dust or the condenser fan motor isnt running all the time the compressor is on. But it will normally be warm all the time the compressor is running..that heat is whats being removed from inside (the way refrigs. work is they remove the heat so when the heat is gone only cold is left)
check model number. if the first 3 numbers are 106. this is a whrilpool made refrig. they have a lot of start kits going bad, It consist of a relay, overload and a relay. you need to replace all three. you can purchase a 3 in1 start kit that will work on all the home refrigs. Check local refrig parts house. usally the small hp kit is fine.
I would pull the refrig out , and remove the back panel , covering the compressor and fan motor . Check to see if the fan is working . Fan not working , causes the divider panel , to get very hot . Also , fan not working , causes the compressor to over heat and cut off on the overload .
hi thanks for the question i would check the back by the compressor make sure its clean . then check the fan in freezer to see if it works then see if the frost built up in freezer you could have just a dirty condenser thanks the appliance doc
I would look to the condenser where the heat is removed from the refrigeration system for your problem. Check and make sure the condenser fan operates, check the compressor for operation. If the condenser is plugged with dust it will cause the compressor to cycle on its thermal overload protector. Normally in back there is a removable panel to access the condenser and compressor area. make sure you reinstall the cover after you are done. It is critical to proper operation and cooling of the system.
check freezer for frost build up and if fan blowing, check condenser make sure clean, and fan blowing, by compressor
Make sure compressor is running and not shutting off on overload.. u said comp. hot.. should be warm... Not hot
check vents in refrig. make sure no blockage, freezer control should be in the middle setting,
you can try turning that to Warmer freezer allowing MORE air to refrigertor side.
