I have a Frigidaire upright, frost free freezer. Normally, I keep it approximately 3 inches from the wall. I noticed about a month ago the high temp light would come on.the compressor was also almost too hot to touch. I moved it away from the wall,unplugged it, thinking maybe some froze up on the inside. I plugged it back in a couple hours later, and it was fine. A week ago the high temp light and alarm came on. The temp is actually staying between 16 and 18 degrees. So it really isn't all that high. But the compressor stays hot, even if I put a fan blowing on it. Nothing is wrong with gaskets or anything. It seals well, and still does the ,lock, (for lack of a better term) when you close it. (Can't open for a few seconds after.) Wondering if it could be a sensor, and why the compressor is getting so hot.
