How often should the Refrigerator Cycle?

I have a Kenmore top-freezer refrigerator model #253.7480240F, it is 5 years old. I noticed that it has been cycling a lot lately. It comes on for an hour then shuts off for 45 minutes. Next, it turns on for 30, shuts off for 90, then it goes on for 60. I have replaced big door seal & freezer timer switch. Nobody can seem to tell me if this is normal or what is a proper cycling for 24 hrs.
