Default compressor only runs for 30-45 sec

i have a fri. that the compressor only runs for 30-45 sec and then the controller gets hot and shuts down. I have 120 volts even when the comp stops. Any idea maybe the controller is bad or the run capacitor?

If there is voltage to the compressor when it shuts down, you have a bad compressor. Usually terminal for even a decent refrigerator, too expensive to fix, might want to get it checked by a pro.

there is voltage there but i just have no idea what they call a compressor controller and what it does. it is a replaceable part little black box with the run capacitor mounted to it also. There are 3 prongs on the compressor itself and have again no idea which 2 are power.

Your compressor is probably failing, drawing excessive current, then shutting down on the overload device inside the controller. An amprobe would confirm this. Also, if the compressor takes a rather long time to re-start, that would confirm it.
You can try a new controller, really a start device with internal overload klixon AP2113688
Without confirmation, you will probably have an unreliable fridg even with a new start device.
