    Check the discharge temps, check the suction temps, SH and that'll tell you if it's too hot.

    I know I have a similar one for a freezer but it has a fan on it and is water cooled.

    Important you keep an eye on it, a drop in suction pressure affects the compression ratio significantly and can rapidly cause the compressor to overwork itself.
