If the coils are hot enough to burn you above the refrigerator, then you need to make sure the coils are clean and you also need to make sure the fan next to the compressor is running. This fan is what cools the compressor down so if it's not running it will definitely need to be replaced. Other than that, if the coils are clean and the fan is running, the compressor is just overheating for no reason so you'd need a technician to come out and look at the compressor to check the freon pressure or see if you need a new compressor. We are on the honor system here. Please remember to rate my service before you leave today. If you need anything else, just let me know. You can continue asking follow-up questions at no additional charge after rating my service if you still need assistance.
