Compressor is hot and not cooling
Just a guess: your evaporator is damaged. Don't use your refrigerator, you'll damage the compressor too.
If you don't have the proper equipment to repair a refrigerator, call a repair sarvice

My Danby refrigerator shows a lot of temp variance. A thermometer on the top shelf shows 40 degrees, lower shows 32, is this normal?
if the door has been opened or used for a number of times ,that variation will be around normal
the system works like this
the fridge cools air from the bottom up as cold air falls to the bottom of the fridge
if the door is not being opened ( over night) the whole compartment becomes to the same temperature as set by the thermostat and that is when the fridge cuts of
Now if the door seals are leaking cold air out at the bottom then the whole compartment will never get to the same temperature ( your variation)
similarly if the door is constantly being opened , the cold air at the top of the compartment replaces the cold air at the bottom that has flowed out onto the floor on opening the door (again your variation)
so you have to possible items to check
1 are the door seals in top condition and 2 is the door being opened too much in short periods of time
