Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
A defrost cycle , lasts about 28 to 32 min . It will go into defrost either every 8 , 10 , or 12 hours . The temp in the freezer , can be anywhere from 45 - 100 degrees , depending on the frost build up , due to times it's opened , and length of time opened . The frozen food , in the freezer , is what actually keeps the temp low . No food in the freezer , and the temp will be high . GE , is the only brand that uses 140 degree defrost thermostat , but that is altered by the thermistors .

All refrigeration products have a defrost set point. Most residential units defrost about every six to eighteen hours. This process should take about 30 minutes to 1 hour. The temp goes up so high inside because there is a heating element in the coils to thaw any residual ice. The temp should not exceed about 45 degrees though. If it does the the compressor is signaled to come back on and start cooling again. This is perfectly alright. The time at higher temp is not enough to spoil the food. Hope this helps. Good luck.
