Thanks for brining this up, the Fridge Defend prevents the defrost cycle.
As opposed to the recalls, the Fridge Defend v5.x is an IEC type control that is required to do a self check every 24 hours. This self check resets the defrost cycle automatically, which corrects a lot of the hot weather issues.
The fridge just cannot recover when turned off for 2 hours be it day or night.
