* Is your compressor motor running all the time ?
* have you checked and cleaned your condenser coils at the back ?
* Is there sufficient airflow around your refrigerator (especially at the back) ?
* Is your refrigerator and freezer cooling properly ?
Sounds like your unit is working overtime - it will usually get hot like that when compressor motor has been running a long time and heat does not dissipate properly at the back - it also gets hot after a defrost cycle - it should NOT be hot at all times. CHeck to make sure your temps are correct to rule out a stuck defrost cycle timer - your refrigerator should not be hotter than 40F and your freezer's temp between 0F-10F, the optimal temp is 0F.

First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
