Use the wire leads on the meter and test for voltage at the start relay.
Are the condenser fans running?

condenser fan is running, it doesn't turn on right away, but, it turns after after about a minute when I initially turn the fridge on.  The compressor is getting really hot, but, the evap coils show no sign of getting cold. 

I jumped the cold control so I don't know if that has anything to do with the fact the evap coils aren't cooling?

If the fan and compressor is running the cold control is sending power.

Everything seems to be running well, but the evaporate coils aren't getting cold,  anything else should check?  I checked the compressor, start relay, cold control, I guess I might need to get those gauges and tap the lines?
