Hi @me321 ,
 
If the compressor is too hot to touch and the evaporator is not icy cold, then there most probably is a problem with the sealed system. A lack of refrigerant, a blockage or a faulty compressor.
 
Check the warranty on the refrigerator. Most manufacturers give a 12 month full parts and labour warranty on the refrigerator and a 5 year parts only warranty on the sealed system. The sealed system includes the compressor, the evaporator, the condenser and associated piping etc.

Check for any oil residues below the compressor or on/below the condenser coils. If there this indicates a refrigerant leak. A special oil is mixed in with the refrigerant to lubricate the compressor. If there is a leak, the refrigerant will escape to the air undetected, but the oil will leave a trace.
 
Also depending on your location, you may need a ''licenced'' repairer to check the sealed system due to the environmental regulations regarding the handling of refrigerant gases. Where I am you cannot even buy any refrigerant gas if necessary to recharge the system for any reason, without the specified licence.
 
What is the model number of the refrigerator?
