Question about Refrigerators
As far as the poor cooling in the summer months goes it sounds Your door gaskets dried out and this keeps it from getting a good seal, to fix this just apply a thin layer of vasoline to the door gasket, this will let it expand and give you a good seal. The sceaching noise is a bigger issue, you are right in thinking a bearing, should be the defrost fan motor that is giving you the sound, to view a parts breakdown on this you will need to find the model #, then go to marcone.com to view a breakdown of the ref and order the new part

In order to better assist you I would need the units model No. I am assuming that your unit is a side by side, so here is a diagram on where to look for the model number.
In the mean time, the problem with the unit running all the time could be related to the evaporator fan OR to a faulty evaporator fan or dirty evaporator coil. Unplug unit from wall outlet and use a vacuum with the small brush attachment to clean the back of the fridge, be gentle on the coils, they bent easily. This is part of the units maintenance. While you're there, check that the condenser fan is working. It should kick in strong when you plug unit back on the wall, if you notice a drag or turns slow, replace it. If notice problem to start but when it does is fine, replace starting capacitor.
Good luck!! keep me posted!

The first problem you're having could be caused by a few things- low refrigerant, dirty compressor coils (usually underneath), or a faulty defrost circuit (leading to ice on the evaporator coils),
You have to have a certified repair person to check, and refill the refrigerant. I think that's one of the possibilities here, since the unit sounds like it's struggling all the time to get the temperature down.
The second problem is most likely a bad fan, or compressor. You will have to determine the model number (they can be inside the unit, or on the back of it), and order a replacement, if it's the fan, or call a repairman if it's the compressor. Here's a site that offers parts for this make:
I'm not a HVAC certified person, and have some work on refrigerators, and there's always a way to get to the replaceable parts, although it's often not apparant, or easy to the "first timer" guy.
If you go to the following website, and enter your model number, you stand a good chance of getting diagrams and parts lists for your unit, and they will show you a blown up assembly diagram, which should help you figure this out. Here's their site:
Otherwise, call a local Sear's or other appliance repair shop and see if they can tell you something helpful. I noticed Sear's has sold some Daewoo products, so they may service them also.
I couldn't find any site for Daewoo on the net, and the only link that came up was discontinued, so I'm not certain if they're still in business- Sear's may have some number or way of contacting them if you need to.
I'm thinking, since your compressor has been working overtime, it may need replacement. Get a repairman to check it out, after you clean it, if that doesn't help.
Good luck, and I hope this helps.
