Why does my daewoo fridge freezer works intermittently ?

You either have a faulty thermostat, a loose connection or most likely a build up of ice inside the freezer. I had the same problem. Almost replaced fridge. Took all the food out one day, took out the racks and disassembled bottom and rear and found a two foot log block of ice inside air return. Removed ice everything works perfectly.

water line going to dispenser. If you cannot set the temperature a little warmer this can be caused by a defective W10196393 Auto Damper This problem also can be caused by the fresh food section 12002355 Thermistor The thermistor is a electronic way of measuring temperatures in fresh food section, freezer and ice maker also have thermistors.
Here is a ABC2037DES Tech Sheet with the diagnostic's
for thermistor's and the auto damper, I will help you if you like so please let me know if you have questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

2002 amana bottom freezer full of frost took food out turned off freezer now what ? ice maker never installed !

Is the thermostat set too high? Does it ever turn off?

It could be the door seals, check to see if intact, if so, could need cleaning so they seat properly.

Finally, should there be draw covers, which have been removed?

My bottom freezer is making ice but not keeping the food frozen

The flow tubes are blocked.You will need to defrost the unit,unplug and pull off as much ice as possible.You can put pans of hot water in the freezer.

Water freezing at bottom of freezer, food not freezing

maybe? yeah but have you checked that the drainage hole is is clean and clear from any trapped dirt, that is sometimes a major problem, it stopped my freezer from functioning for weeks!! but the day i cleared it the water was gone, and the freezer was working as good as new!

Amana BX22A2W - freezer works, fridge not cooling

Same problem here with an Amana refrigerator with the freezer on the bottom. I removed the back panels and vacuumed dust and cat hair out. The back panel in the freezer was frosted over with ice on the bottom. I removed the shelves and food and used a hairdryer to loosen the panel. The ice maker made it harder to remove the plastic panel so I pulled it back and saw the cooling fins frozen solid. I used the hairdryer to melt the ice and a shop vacuum to collect the water. It works like new again.
