How to prolong the lifetime of an open wine bottle?

You should minimize the exposure to air by corking the bottle tightly. If there is a little bit of wine left try transferring it into a smaller bottle. You should also keep it away from light and heat and put it in the refrigerator.

Unit will not stay cool. Is it a thermostat, compressor?

Small refrigeration units like this one like to fail to cool by developing a small leak and slowly
leaking refrigerant.
A technician will check the thermostat using using a DMM (digital multimeter). But you can suspect the thermostat if you set the thermostat high and the compressor motor does not run,
then set thermostat low, and the compressor motor also doesn't run - in other words, the thermostat is failing to start the refrigerator's refrigeration system no matter what its setting - an obvious failure of the thermostat.
If the compressor is dying, you would hear the compressor running almost constantly, but not
sounding quite right (uneven noise, clunking, tapping).
If you unit is low on refrigerant (due to a leak), the compressor motor will be running
almost constantly, but it will sound Ok.

6 bottle unit model cwc-600 died after 6 months. Acts like it isn't plugged in or a blown fuse. But no fuse!

The fuse is on the circuit board, behind the rear cover. It's a 2.5 ampere metric fuse. These boards are very voltage spike sensitive, and chances are you need a new board, as the rectifier diodes in the switching power supply blow and short out easily. If you get a new board, use a voltage spike power strip to protect it.

Cuisinart Private Reserve wine cellar

It is normal. The goofy thing about this wine cellar is that once the ambient temperature is above 70 degrees - which is actually a low room temperature - the fan works constantly. You would have to make sure the wine cellar is in an area that stays below 68 degrees (brrrr) for it to shut off sometimes.
