Compressor runs, but not hot to touch
Temperature alarm went off on our 1998 Kenmore model 2539280412. I pulled the panel over the evaporator and found a small amount of ice on the tubes leading to the evaporator coil and ice was plugging the drain hole. The compressor was warm, but not hot, to the touch after a minute or more of run-time. Is it time to replace the fridge? I can't think of anything that would cause the compressor to not run hot. Thanks!
