Question about Haier HVT12ABS Compact Wine Cooler
The unit was working fine and now is dead. I pulled off the plate in the back and it looks like there are two fuses on the back board and the top one looks black. can I replace this fuse
I had the same problem. My 18-month old Haier HVT 12A wine cooler stopped working. I unplugged the unit, opened the back, and saw the circuit board and the two fuses soldered to the circuit board. The top fuse was OK. The bottom fuse, labelled FUSE2 5A/250V on the circuit board, was blown.
I went to Radio Shack and purchased a spring-loaded push and twist fuse holder ($3) and a bag of fuses (another $3). I soldered the leads from the fuse holder to the top and bottom of the dead fuse 2, inserted a new fuse, plugged it in, and it has been working fine ever since (1 month). If the new fuse fails, it is easy to replace. Total cost $6.

That board is available on there for $27. RF-1870-01 is the part number in case you still have the unit..

I too experienced this problem. The upper fuse that you refer to is the 120V AC line fuse. The lower fuse is for the internal 12VDC supply (5A). These fuses are pig tail types and are soldered into the circuit board. The 12VDC fuse was blown on mine. After some cursory troubleshooting, I replaced the fuse, and off she ran... for about 12 hours and the fuse blew again. It's not worth fixing.

Haier doesn't list a fuse. That board would need to be replaced if it is the problem. I would say the most common problem on those is the thermostat if the board doesn't fix it. You might see if that fuse will pop out and test it for resistance first. If it does come out you might be able to find one at a hardware store that will fit and see if it starts working again.
