Major Appliances/refrigerator is hot to touch

Question
I just replaced my compressor start switch/overload.  It is cooling nicely but I find that the divide wall in my side by side is now extremely hot to the touch.  Compressor fan is working.  Compressor is hot to touch as well as the copper lines going in and out of it.

Kenmore model 10652552100  yr 2002

Answer
Most likely a restriction or sealed system problem.  Pull the evaporator panel inside the freezer section and verify the compressor is running for at least 15 minutes....Is there frost top to bottom, left to right and front to back?

Waiting to hear from you,
