I have a ten year old KitchenAid Supra side-by-side refrigerator, model #KSSS4QDK05. The freezer appears to periodically get stuck in defrost and not come back out.

My Amana refrigerator defrost timer is supposed to cycle every eight hours. Instead it takes about 14 hours to cycle around back to the defrost mode. The defrost mode does last for the proper 20 minutes. This is a brand new defrost timer which I bought to replace the old one, which was only three years old. The old one did the same thing which made me believe it was broken.
