It sounds like you're having a control board PCB issue. You can often get replacement parts directly from Vinotemp. Of course, I'm sure the issue will be easier to resolve if your unit is still under warranty. If not, they should still be able to sell you the parts you need and then you or a qualified repair person can replace whatevers needed. Instructions for some service issues can be found on the Vinotemp website in the Customer Service section. You can also request service for your unit there. Hope you get it fixed!

Sounds like the cooling unit, i.e. heat sink and controller chip. $35 + $10 shipping from vinotemp, and you install yourself. I'm looking at the same thing (on the 28TEDS), though mine came after having to replace (for $45 and my own installation, incl. soldering) the circuit board. I hope yours doesn't go, too. I've read of others. Pretty poor quality parts they appear to use. I'm trying to find somewhere to buy the controller chip on its own, as the heat sink is simply a hunk of metal. Hopefully that's do-able, as it is with computer cpu's.

How To Test the Compressor Relay
The compressor relay's purpose is to
start the compressor. A faulty relay can result in the compressor
failing to cycle on. The relay is accessed from the lower rear of the
relay is located in the terminal box which is located at the side of the compressor.
Before testing a compressor relay, unplug the refrigerator to avoid an electrical shock hazard. Also, if the compressor uses a capacitor, it must be discharged first to avoid the risk of electrical shock.
Beneath the terminal cover is found the compressor relay , overload protector and the electrical terminals of the compressor motor.
Remove the compressor relay by pulling it straight off from the compressor.
Pull the wire off of the side terminal of the relay. It is connected with a slip on connector. Firmly pull the connector, do not pull on the wire. You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers.
Inspect the connector and terminal for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced.
There are two types of relays you may encounter, wire coil and solid state. If the relay has an exposed wound wire coil it can be tested for continuity. Otherwise, the relay is of solid state design and requires specialized equipment for testing.

My VT-12TEDi stopped working after about six months; the common ticking sound from the controller board. After a little research, I found the 16V 1000uF 16mmx10mm capacitor (silver and black can) on the board (upper left corner) was bad. Visual indications are the typical "popped" top of the capacitor can. I purchased a quality replacement capacitor for less than $1 and replaced it. It was a very easy soldiering job that most people with a pencil iron could do. The unit works great now and I don't expect it to go out again anytime soon.
