You will need to check the heating coils, if electric model or the gas burner , self igniting which can be faulty or block in the pipes..
Please remove to have access to the set to check these parts out which can be the culprit.

My cooling fan does not work but when I unplug the switch located in the thermostat housing it runs as long as the key is on. What should I do?

You dont say under what circumstances it doesn't run. It is only suppose to run when needed i.e. when the water is hot. If it is not hot, the fan shouldn't run. When you plug it into a hot wire, it runs al the time while the circuit is hot. There is a procedure to check the switch. You will have to remove the switch and heat it in a pan of water while you observe the temp on a theomemeter. You will also have to have a VOM to see when the contacts close.

2000 mercury villager is running hot ,the other day it blew of the top hose from the radiator so I put it back on and filled it back up with fluid ,parked it on a hill and made sure no air was in it and it...

your thermostat is stuck in the closed position, replace it, anytime a hose blows off, this is usually the case, remember when replacing it that the spring part of it goes towards the motor

My motor was just rebuilt and put back on by the pool company. It is hot, so hot you cannot leave your hand on it. Is this normal? should I be concerned.

Yes its perfectly normal on a hot day with the motor being air cooled. As long as the motor isnt overheating (loss of power) and has issues running your fine. Keep in mind that the motor runs by exploding gasoline and the energy that doesn't get transferred to the mower to drive it and turn the blade is expelled in heat. Same as your car engine (will get hot to the touch).

The compressor is running and the fan is running but it is not cooling. The refrigerator runs and stops like normal. Last time we had it checked the repair guy said it was the fan not spinning fast enough...

On the refrigerator and after sometime hold the condenser to see if it is hot, if it doesn't become hot then there is no refrigerant in the system there must be a leakage somewhere or it could be the compressor which is losing compression or doesn't pump well.
