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.

What you could check is that the fan at the back of the unit, where the compressor is located, is working, as this could also cause a heat build up. The partition between the two sides does generally tend to get hot due to the door circuit, to prevent ice buildup around the door. But people tend to notice when something is different. You are also right to check for dust underneath the cabinet as the condenser tends to be layered. If you have already cleaned it all out then you have probably done as much as you can. If you are still concerned contact a fridge guy. Hope this is of some help.

SOURCE: losing coldness in freezer and
Condenser is in need of being cleaned badly or your fan motor to cool the condenser is not operating. Compressor is overheating. Removed the panel in back of the refrigerator and clean the condenser so air can freely pass over it for heat removal. Allow compressor to cool off before restarting it.

To solve this problem, you must open the compressor area at the back bottom of the refrigerator and chek the temperature of the pressure line. If the temperature is between 55celcius to 60 than its ok. Or else you need to change the refrigerant.
I suggest you to contact the service authority.
Thanks for contacting Fixya.
