    Since both sides of the coil are blocked by a structure so close, it causes the discharge air to recirculate to the back of the unit instead of dissipating away. Having a baffle on this unit on a roof would be no problem because that hot air moves away from the unit and cool air continues to get pulled in from the back. In this configuration, hot air gets deflected off the fence to the back of the unit since it can't move away fast enough and becomes recirculated.

    It would probably actually work better with a baffle if it's clear over head.
    Blow more of that hot air up.
