If the compressor is running hot and you had trouble with it starting up, it is exhibiting classic signs of a restriction, probably in the cap tube or drier. Again, measuring the run load amps of the compressor will tell you a lot,.

If you provide a complete model number, including prefix, we might could find a tech sheet fo you.

 IT seems to be running fine today its kicks on for about 20 mins to a 30mins and stays off for about the same time. The compressor is warm (hot if you hold your hand on there for more then 2 mins but is way cooler then it was. When we moved the fridge from storage We had to lay it on its side. I was told on this kind of fridge it shouldnt matter but I still waited awhile to turn it on. Maybe the oil cause restriction and thats what caused it to heat up who knows maybe even blow the first relay. :-\Just happy its working thank you everyone
