Your Model Number is incorrect, please check it.

The only thing with oil in it, in a fridge is the motor.
So if it came from the fridge you have a major problem.
I would shut off the unit till you can determine the source.

Thanks!

You had said motor so I used the same terminology actually it is an oil filled compressor.

Unhappy Black stuff is likely

It is possible your compressor is overheating and the shell is oozing its bonding/sealing gasket material becaue of the heat. The lubricating oil could also be leaking out a bad gasket. It is either failing on its own, or a continuous call for cooling (stuck thermostat or dirty coils) is making it run too much. There is usually a thermal limit switch built in to the compressor which is likely bad in addition to the other things. (This would allow it overheat).
