Some cars use vacuum from the engine to open and close the doors that direct the air to different positions. It is possible that the vacuum line to the controls is cracked or disconnected.

How do I set the temp so it stays in defrost longer

If its a refrigerator, there is no defrost. If its a freezer, there is a defrost termination bi metal button attached to the coil with a fixed value that will kick it back into the freeze cycle to keep it from turning into an oven in case the defrost timer fails. There is no easy way to defeat it. Sorry.

Freezer stays in defrost to long

Typical defrost cycles can last from 5 to 25 minutes, depending on the type of defrost system and the amount of frost build-up on the freezer coil. If the defrost cycle is longer than 30 minutes then it is too long. On a mechanical defrost timer system it would indicate the timer is dragging or running slowly and needs to be replaced as it might eventually quit altogether. On a solid state defrost system you would need to check the sensor(s) - usually thermistors - but it would probably be a faulty control board.

What is defrost overheat?

There is defrost heater which comes on in defrost cycle. defrost heater stays on certain time(lets say 15 min), but lets think it came on to defrost and melted all ice of the coils during 5 min, but we still have 10 more min design for heater to stay on. if heater will stay another 10 min it will warm up your stuff in the freezer, so everything will start to melt. to get around this, all freezers have limit thermostat(defrost thermostat), when that thermostat feels heat from heater, it will shut power off to the heater, so it still in defrost cycle, but heater will be off for another 10 min. When that thermostat get stuck in closed position(does not shut power to the heater when all ice melted out), you will have defrost overheat. so most likely that defrost thermostat needs to be replaced. here is the video how i replaced it on subzero pro series.

how old is your model you have. a weak pump will make the system slower to get to temp even a broken seal can do this. even just a few mil gap can make it do this. if you close the door then re-open it it should be harder to open the door. this is the seal being nice and tight to its fittings.

Your defrost timer is probably staying on too long, or the defrost thermostat is not sensing that the temperature was that high. It does tell you that the defrost heater is operational, just that it is staying on too long.

True freezer model TS49f-RC. Evaporator fans will not run. Defrost timer will not stay in defrost when manually turned to defrost. Believe defrost termination switch is bad. ?

You are most likely correct. Most manufacturers of freezers have fan delay/defrost terminators. But keep in mind that if the box is hot, it will not stay in defrost as that is what the terminator is designed to do. Does the unit ever get cold? You may have a refrigeration problem and the terminator is good. If you can give some additional info, I'll be glad to keep assisting you to get it going.

The fan stops during the whole defrost cycle, there is a bi metal control that determines the length of time the heater stays on. This could be the problem, if the heater stays on for the time that is allowed by the defrost timer it will get too warm in the freezer. the bi metal is located on the evaporator.
