Question about Daewoo Refrigerators
SOURCE: Defrost condensate not draining
Make sure the water goes down the drain quickly. If the drain is a little clogged it may not be draining fast enough, letting it freeze before it drains. I use compressed air at a low psi to clear the drain from the freezer compartment. Does the refrig have an ice maker?? If the water is spilling over the fill tube behind the freezer panel it will also ice over the drain. Also sometimes drains just ice up for no apparent reason. I deice them and then they work fine. You can also take a piece of romex wire (the solid copper strand type) use the ground wire (bare copper) or strip the insulation off the black or white wires and loop the wire over the defrost heater and down into the drain hole. This will help any ice that builds up around the drain to melt in the defrost cycles. Let me know how it turns out.

frozen coils not always means freon problem. low air flow across evaporator coils could cause freeze up. if door is opened and closed an abnormal amount could cause a freeze up or even something pushed up against the air intake in the refridgerator. i would thaw it out completely and restart it, theres a chance it was nothing major. good luck

You should be able to see the drain under the coil. Part 804 on this diagram. Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end
because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the
evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it.
Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing
it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing.

I just worked on a FF801W which is supposed to be very similar. The defrost heater in mine was of the glass tube type and located under the evaporator. There was a bimetal thermostat clipped to the top of the evaporator and a thermal fuse (sealed in a clear plastic tube) nearby. The connections were behind a little plastic cover (2 screws) in the back wall just above the evaporator.
Mine was iced up like yours and I had to defrost it with a hair dryer. All the defrosting parts in the freezer compartment turned out to work so I now suspect the defrost timer (down by the compressor). I've marked it and I'm waiting to see if it's turning.
