My KitchenAid KSSS42QJT00 compressor is hot to the touch, and (as measured by my more reliable hand) does NOT seem to cycle between hot and cold (as I would have expected), even when not running.  I took a measurement (with a pretty well calibrated  IR digital thermometer) just now of 138-F.

 

So, are there any guidelines on expected temperatures at the compressor shell, and how they might vary over time?  The ambient is around 76-F.
