Hello Mike
There a few things that can make the compressor hot or overheat.
1) If you compressor is locked up it will overheat. You have a hermetic compressor. It is completely sealed by a welded seam. If the the compressor locks up it needs to be replaced. ( Very expensive repair )
2) The relay on the compressor is defective. It is number #1 on the schematic. If the relay goes bad it can make the compressor overheat.
You can call our parts department with your model number at 1-800-830-5465 to get a price on the relay.
