Question about Refrigerators
Compressor comes on for about 20 seconds and the shuts off about every 3 to 5 minutes
If there is a capacitor running the compressor, replace it. if that does not solve the problem, suspect the compressor failing.

If you remove the back panel on the inside of the cabinet then you would be able to check the evaporator coil (cold bit) and see if it is frozen up. If it is then defrost the system and see if you have any improvement. All the things you have pointed out over the compressor is normal, they do run incredibly hot. If you have got the freezer on a very cold setting I would suggest bringing both setpoints to a mid range setting. Check the temp in the fridge by measuring liquid temp as air temp is prone to fluctuate more. If you still have a concern I would suggest contacting a fridge guy to assist you. Hope this is of some if not limited help.

You have to troubleshoot the control devices such as thermostat. You need a voltmeter to test the control circuitry
