Thermal coupling in wine chiller
No, I would not recommend putting water into the chill chamber since if there is a "gap" hole in this compartment, the water could get inside the unit's electronics etc.. which could at the very least short the unit and at worst electrocute you as you take the bottle out/touch the unit. That's the problem with this or any other Peltier/thermoelelectric type of chiller. They are only good for maintaining an ALREADY cold bottle's temperature, not for chilling it rapidly. There is no good or inexpensive way to get better chilling from these types of units. It's the law of themodynamics and heat transfer. Water is the best/safest/most inexpensive medium to use, not chilled air or even super cold air. Cold air or even super cold air just does not match the chilling
potential of a liquid like water. The reason why 50F air is no
problem, for you to be out in for hours, but 50F water you'll get
hypothermia in 20-30 mins.
The best unit for chilling a warm wine bottle is the cooper cooler. Go to www.coopercooler.com. It uses ice and water and sprays the ice cold water over the bottle while spinning it to chill it quickly. This unit is great since it can also chill single serve drinks like beer/soda etc so is more versatile than the other chillers. Cheapest is about $59 which is much less than the waring at ~$100

Waring Portable Ice Machine Schematics
I doubt you will find any schematics for this unit. It should be pretty straight forward anyway. I suspect that uses a solid state plate cooler, and basic schematics for them, and their control board, can probably be found n the internet.

What is linen?
What is Linen? - Linen is nothing but a natural fabric that is extracted from flax plants. The finest linen comes from the flax fields of Europe due to the rich soil and optimal temperature. Linen fabrics are more absorbent and heavier than cotton. They are also about 30% stronger and are quite durable. The material may feel crisp at first, but with time and use, they turn soft and subtle to the touch. If you are searching for a more breathable option than cotton for the summer, look no further than a linen shirt!

Roof leak on a cement tile roof.
Look for a crack in a tile, or a crack / missing cement in the ridge tiles. Water can travel a long way, so the best solution is to get inside the loft space when it is raining.
