Question about Refrigerators
The pump/compressor is hot to the touch. Cleaned around the pump. Will this help cool down the pump and get the frig to work properly?
If the fridge is getting warm while the freezer is ok, the most possible reason is the defrost resistance termostat (very cheap) or the resistance. When ice accumulates on evaporator, doesn't permit air flow to the fridge and also ice or frost builds up in the freezer.

No, A compressor will get hot for about three reasons.
Lack of airflow, (maybe due to very dirty coils or bad condensor coil fan on modes with a fan)
Or high amp draw. (which would mean you have a bad compressor)
Its more common to be one of the first two, especially low refridgerant.
