Check the 2 fuses,one covered with black heat shrink, next see if internal fan is spinning, inside door, the 2 fans on the back should spin when first plugged in. also the 2 led's red and green should light up...if internal fan doesn't spin then check or replace, use batteries to get it to spin as a test...good luck,safety first...

If either the top or bottom compartment is not cooling, then the thermal couple (cooling module) behing the fan and heat sink is bad. It can be replaced with part number RF 4545-14 but they cost $70 each. One on the top and another on the bottom. You would need to solder a few wires. I think, this is not worth the cost, since the fridge cost about $150. Also if you don't get power than the circuit board in the back has burned-out. The replacement for this part is RF-5210-37 cost about $38. I replaced the the circuit board after the fridge wouldn't go on. Now the top compartment won't cool and I need a thermal couple. Total cost would have been $130 and I think it's not worth it. So since I fixed the power issue, I will use this fridge just for my reds in the bottom compartment for as long as it will last. I will remove the broken thermal couple, maybe I can put together my own.

Maybe not the answer for everyone, but I proved it was the fan by removing the back panel, removing the fan and finger guard, then placing a small desktop fan that was the same size as the top-rear fan on the wine fridge. Pumping air directly over the heat sink allowed the unit to attain the temperature set on the front panel. The old fan would either not turn at all, or too slowly to be effective. These fans are junk. Especially after finding articles such as this out in different forums for the same issue.
I have the HVTS18DABB model unit and the replacement fan is a simple 120mm square, 25mm deep 12V DC fan. Similar or the same as you see in computer chassis. Found some inexpensive, high CFM, low noise fans from the following site:
Specific fan for my application was the model SY1225SL12SH. Although I did order a second fan that is similar in case the .5amps was too high and I popped a fuse. These fans are inexpensive folks, as long as you aren't afraid to get your hands dirty. Good luck.
Here are the details on my order:
Name Code Qty Each Options
Yate Loon 120x25mm D12SH-12 1 5.99
D12SH-12 High Speed -
Black (88 CFM, 40 dBA)
Scythe 120x25mm SY1225SL12SH 1 7.95 Add Black Sleeving = No
SlipStream SY1225SL12SH -
