Hi Mr Hodjati,
No this is not normal. You have a failure of air flow in your condenser. I will explain how to repair if you wish to make the repair youself. If this is not addressed you will soon realize a reduction in cooling and a higher use of energy.
There is a fan that pulls air in from the lower right side front of the refrigerator grille located below the fresh food door, and exhausts the air on the left side of this same grille. Remove this grill and clean the coils with a vacume cleaner and a brush. Pull the refrigerator out so you can get behind the unit. Unplug the power cord from the wall. Next remove the screws from the panel behind the refrigerator near the bottom, the panel may look like a piece of cardboard, but it is a critical component. Once this panel is removed you will see the fan motor and fan blade, make sure nothing like a food wrapper or animal is stuck in the fan causing it to be stuck. If it turns free by hand (it will be real hot down there so be careful), then the motor needs replaced. If you send me the model number I can find you the replacement part number. Let me know if this helps.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your help!!"
check the coil to see if it needs to be cleaned and pull out the machine,if it's getting that hot the condenser fan motor could be dead.pull it out and remove the bottom panel in the back and make sure the fan is blowing and clean the condenser coil.the fan motr part number is W10124096 and it's around 85 to 90 dollars.if the fan isn't running you can stick any fan back there to cool down the compressor and get the fan motor as soon as possible,i've found mice stuck in the fan going for water in the pan or papers,if something is jammed in the blade hopefully when you pull it out it will still run but i think this is your problem,good luck.one more thing the model number you sent isn't the full number,you're missing a number on the end the model i looked up ended in 1 but the fan should be the same,you can open the fridge door,look up near the ceiling on the right hand wall and you should see the model number,if it's not there,look down near the bottom hindge on the fridge door,you might have to remove the bottom kickplate to see it,give the number to your parts store and they will sell you the correct part.
