The good suggestion has been made, to take some PET Drink bottles and part fill with a saturated Salt Solution.. Place these at the top of the freezer..
They will absorb the cold
whilst running and tide you over in the OFF period, which unfortunately happens to be when it's hottest..
I had planned to do this, but have gone a different road of actually installing a PV/Battery system to run the refrigerators etc.
You can easily and cheaply buy a remote measuring thermometer..
Try it - freeze those bottles at the TOP - MUST be the top (Heat rises)
Let the thermometer show you just how it's working... Adjust the number of bottles to suit your needs
7/8 fill them and squeeze the air out...
