    Guess it is not normal as the unit is not shutting off...unless I do so buy turning off the unit. Any ideas as to how/what I did not connect correctly?

SOURCE: What is the normal operational

why yes there is. Generally speaking, the head pressure should be around the "ambient +30" rule.
That is, measure the entering air temp to the condenser, say 75 degrees. Now add 30 to that and get 105 degrees. Look at a P/T chart and see what the pressure is for that temp which is about 253 for R-404-A.
The evap on a freezer leads the load so, as a general rule, the evap temp is going to be around minus 10 degrees to get a 0 degree box. Coolers are different. So, the pressure for a minus 10 evap is around 25 or so. But the unit has to be close to operating temp. If the box is warm, naturally the pressure is higher. And what influences the pressure is whether or not it's a TXV or a cap tube system.
If a TXV and no receiver, charge by subcooling. If a receiver, fill by sight glass. If Cap tube, charge by superheat.
Hope that answers your question.

Should my refigerator compressor be hot to the touch?

Hello friend, thanks for the post!

Based off the information you have provided your compressor can be hot to the touch because it is working to help cool down your refrigerator. I would allow it the opportunity to maintain proper temperature inside of your appliance before it stops running. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Kitchenaid KSCS23IN Burning Hot Divider Wall then No Compressor, No Fan, No Cold Can Hear Clicking

The clicking is caused by the clixon turning off power to over heated motor that is not starting. Check the condition of the starter cap or relay and change. If a good cap or relay does not start your compressor then the rotor is frozen and you need a new compressor. (ouch)

Describe your 50522 / 50524 Side by Side Refrigerator Problem Compressor does not run. Control relay mounted on compressor rattles but has connectivity to the 3 terminals going to compressor

Hello if the start relay is rattling it is at fault and would have to be replaced. You may have connectivity between all poles but if the inside of the relay is rattling you would most likely have one side touching the other when the compressor trys to start which would not make the compressor start at all. It would be like taking the hot and grounding it out before it had a chance to reach where it is supposed to be grounding out to or not even makeing it to the common side at all. I would first look at replaceing the start relay and overload and then see how your unit is running after replaceing these two with the new replacements. If you have any further questions message me back Thanks Rick

Wine fridge not cooling

It is normal for a compressor to be hot to the touch, but not super hot. clicking noise sounds like the relay located on the compressor terminals is bad. Hope this helps
