It should work straight out with a step down transformer. That is of course if the mains supply in South Africa is 240 240 and the unit being American is 110.
This is of course not unless it was initially tried without a transformer or stepdown converter which would mean that the charger/adapter has been fried and therefore damaged.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

No, I do not think so. Try a company called MP Marketing in Durban. They used to do the repairs for Pick n' Pay and many of their earlier products were Daewoo rebadged as the Aim brand.

Yes change the defrost heating element it usually looks like a glass tube with a heating coil inside, you may also need a temp sensor. check out repair clinic.com for parts and instructions Good luck

Hello, Your freezer normally goes into a defrost cycle every 6-12 hours depending on manufacturers specifications. If the freezer is going out of its defrost cycle timeing sequence one of the first parts that would be checked would be the defrost timer which is shown on this diagram as part number 23 click this link http://c.searspartsdirect.com/lis_png/PLDM/R0504211-00003.png usually though if you are feeling the sides of the cabinet and they are getting warm this is a sign that the compressor is not cooling in this second diagram http://c.searspartsdirect.com/lis_png/PLDM/R0504211-00002.png I do see a fan motor but the schematic does not give the motors location. Usually the compressor does have a fan or a large condenser path that the refrigerant travels through in which it is cooled by either one of these two mentioned. I would first open the freezer door and listen if you can hear a fan running if not then that would most likely be the issue. The compressor has to be able to cool if it cannot then the lines that travel through the cabinet will start to heat up. If you have any further questions message me back Thanks Rick
p.s motor is shown in this diagram as part number 13 and at the most expensive appliance parts which is sears the motor sells for 45.85 the defrost timer sells for 27.00 if you are looking for a repair service which state or area do you currently reside I personally repair in both Rhode Island and Massachuesetts but if you are not in this area I can help you to locate an appliance repair company. Thanks I await your reply Rick

Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.
you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two
If your refrigerator is running but warm, then...
Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...
