Is this a walk in freeze made by Imperial Manufacturing or is this an reach in? I am not firmiliar with a reach in by that name.
If it's a walk in I generally set them for 4 defrost per day evenly spaced for about 30-45 minutes each cycle depending on how often you are in an out of it. How well it is insulated, location of coil and size of equipment. Many factors will play into the exact time but thats where I start. Bout the same on a reach in freeze to for that matter. Providing it has a termination switch otherwise I usually only run 25 minute defrosts.
Unless you just meant how long will it take if you just turn it off and then the only answer is who know could be days.

Sounds like the defrost termination (stops the defrost) has failed. If you are handy you can replace the termination control yourself.
The question also arises why the "Fail-Safe" on the Time Clock (takes unit out of defrost if termination control failed) did not work.

What is the best way to defrost a heavy duty commericial Imperial freezer?

a commercial freezer should have it's own defrost cycle. I would look into what the issue is that is causing you to do a manual defrost.
The 2 most common AND safe ways to defrost any freezer is either using hot water or a hot air source such as a hair dryer.

Ice makers defrost is the harvest cycle. The purpose of a defrost cycle is to clear any ice build up, right?

Short defrost cycle so some ice still on the evap and start new cycle so after some time lots of ice on coil

The defrost cycle is a set time. I would suggest cleaning the evaporator so it has less chance to hang up in the trays.

Unit will not go into defrost.

There is a good chance, if the defrost timer is mechanical, that you can rotate (nudge) the timer to see if it get's going.

Most commercial refrigeration does not use a defrost thermostat, and a lot of it does not use a heater (they use a hot gas bypass valve and pump hot gas through the evaporator, rather than through the condensor.).

Let me know if you need further help.

Takes weeks to freeze

If you freezer has a defrost timer it should have done the defrost on its own. Only the very old freezers had to be defrosted manually. If it continues to stop cooling or you already haven't had the timer replaced or the defrost elements checked let me know.

True commercial freezer

The ice could be preventing the freezer from freezing properly, try defrosting the unit. if this does not help then this could indicate a more serious problem like a bad temp sensor or refrigerant leak.
