How long can I leave my generator off without food in freezer thawing

we have no power so I bought a generator. I've been running it pretty steadily for three days now. How long can I leave it off before the food in my fridge starts to turn, and especially, before the food in the freezer starts to thaw?

I once had a chest freezer full of meat when we lost power for three days. When the lights went out I wrapped the freezer in sleeping bags. After 3 days I went and bought a generator and before I got it off the truck and started the lights came on. The food was still frozen after three days with no power. I would think you could run the generator for 4 hours on and 8 hours off with no problem.

If you leave the door closed, it should stay frozen for three days - assuming it was frozen solid to start.
