What should be the normal running amperage for my Kenmore refrigerator?

I have a Kenmore side x side refrigerator model 253.54739300. A refrigerator repairman told me that it should be about 2.9 amps, and if it was 2 amps or less then my refrigerator was low on Freon. I can't find anything online to substantiate this. My compressor measures about 1.1 amps when running. Can anyone give me more information on this? My refrigerator seems to take forever to cool down to normal temperatures inside, with the compressor running continuously. The condenser fan is running and everything is clean. I had to replace the start relay because the compressor stopped running, but now I wonder if it is also low on refrigerant.
