The front frame gets hot due to the fan next to the compressor not running and cooling down the compressor. You'll need to test and see if the fan is getting 110 volts or not. If it's getting 110 volts and not running, you need to replace the condenser fan motor. The more likely case is that it's not getting 110 volts and that means that your main control board in the far back right corner under the refrigerator inside a sheet metal box against the right side wall has failed and that board would need to be replaced.
