Compressor question...... ouch its HOT!!

I just bought a mini-fridge to hack apart, but the compessor is running unbelievably hot. I can keep my hand on it for more than a few seconds.
I know that mini-fridges have "built in" condensor, hence why the top and sides are pretty warm.

Why is the compressor running that hot!?

Is it because the built in condensor is not removing the heat fast enough and its just looping back in to the compressor?

o yeah, it has only been running literaly 10 minutes. (I just got it).
is it just burning in? I don't think so. but i am i newB at phasechange. (a little)
