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!

the soft humming your hearing could possibly be the compressor stalling.. this can come from a lack or freon. Now this is the first thing you should check as its one of the most common issues in all refrigerant systems.. to do this there is a check port that you connect a guage too and it will give the freon pressure. More than likely you will find it very low and needs re gassing.. before having it regassed I'd suggest that you have it checked for leaks as well ,, (it ran out of freon rather quickly no ??) have a technician come in and check these as he will have all the right tools and stuff needed for for the checking of gas pressure, the dye to check for leaks as well as the freon to regas it.. and if needed the solder to fix any leaks..

I hope this doesn't sound insulting, but there is a switch in the back that controls uniquely the hot water, is it set to on?
