Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.
This is a 6 or 8 bottle free-standing wine cooler from what I can tell.
I am not having much luck determining if this is a manual defrost type unit or not. Given the inital sales price now of $79.95 I have to assume it is a manual defrost type.
There are a few things that can cause your problem.
1. PTC relay and KliXon thermal overload assy on the compressor.
2. Run capacitor
3. Temp control
You said the fan does not run so I cab not rule out the temp control.
I can not even find a parts break down of the unit.
With no fan running the very first suspect is the temp control but you can at least listen for a CLICK when you cycle it from off to any other position. If you hear a click I would start looking at compressor start / run parts.
If you have access to your units compressor note the manufacturer, hp if stated (1/8hp etc) and Model number.
Then call or visit your local appliance parts supply store with that information in hand. The will have a PTC relay / KilXon thermal overload AND run capacitor that will fit your unit. I am pretty sure that will get you going again UNLESS you have a broken wire somewhere.
The replacement parts are going to run about 50% of the cost to replace the whole thing.
Thanks for using FixYa!

SOURCE: Both zones of the wine
Check the thermostat for temperature setting. Also check the condenser coils and clean them if found clogged with dust. Unplug the wine cooler and wait for a couple of hours before plugging it again. If you can hear it running or whining, perhaps the compressor is being overheated. Test various components such as temperature control knob, evaporator fan, defrost timer, compressor relay, overload protector and the compressor motor.
