Call a refrigeration mechanic if the unit is not working. There is no sense in trying to fool an inspector...bottomline, your cooler must be at least 36 degrees F or your food will spoil. And being the reputable businessman I know you are, you really wouldnt want to serve food that has gone bad, would you? That would get you shut down. If the compressor is running and is extremely hot, it is probably low or out of refrigerant....a mechanic must fix the leak and recharge the unit. This is not really DIY material unless you have the tools and know - how.
