How hot is the compressor suppose to get? Warm to the touch or too hot to touch?
Answer Hi Tracy. The compressor should only get warm to the touch as if you can stand to lay your hand on it for 10-20sec. It should not fry an egg.... Improper air flow is a very common failure if the condenser fan is stopped or not up to speed. Part # 12002738. If the condenser coils are stopped up, then take a shop vac and coil brush part #TJ103 to clear so the freon does not boil. This will overheat a compressor as well. If the back is dirty... Thank You.
