Re: wine cooler doesn't cool properly
Few things to check here. If the compressor is not running then the problem may be a bad thermostat or the compressor start device (ptc starter). Most common would be the thermostat on wine coolers. Also need to check if the fan is running. If everything is running then you have a sealed system problem. If the fan is the only thing that is not running that will cause a no cool situation.

If after adjusting your thermostat to desired temp and is still cooling. The thermostat is bad or your relay is bad
If you disconnect the thermostat and the compressor stops it most likely a bad thermostat
If you disconnect the relay from
The thermostat and it stay running it is the relay. It is sticking
If possible store you wine somewhere else and shut the unit down and unplug for 10 to 20 minutes this may cause some melt of condensation some water may be on the floor if is to cold
This may also reset the system.
Its really hard to determine without proper diagnosis, but are you sure it indeed has a compressor? does it run ? Does it have a circulating fan inside? A lot of the wine coolers I've dealt with were "Peltier" coolers. They use electronics to cool usually only to about 10deg below room temp. They require a load ( in this case wine bottles ) to operate properly. They don't have a cold control like a refrigerator.
Possible Causes Response
a. Power cord unplugged
b. No power at all
c. If display lighting, temp setting high
d. If temp setting ok, sensors or control board bad
e. Compressor unit malfunctioning
a. Check for power cord plug
b. Check receptacle voltage & fuses
c. Lower temperature setting
d. Call service for replacing sensors or control board
e. Call service for component check
Small refrigeration units like this one like to fail to cool by developing a small leak and slowly leaking refrigerant. THERMOSTAT FAILURE CHECK: A technician will check the thermostat using using a DMM (digital multimeter). But you can suspect the thermostat if you set the thermostat high and the compressor motor does not run, then set thermostat low, and the compressor motor also doesn't run - in other words, the thermostat is failing to start the refrigerator's refrigeration system no matter what its setting - an obvious failure of the thermostat. COMPRESSOR FAILURE CHECK: If the compressor is dying, you would hear the compressor running almost constantly, but not sounding quite right (uneven noise, clunking, tapping). REFRIGERANT LEAK CHECK: If you unit is low on refrigerant (due to a leak), the compressor motor will be running almost constantly, but it will sound Ok.
Try disconnecting all power to the unit for about 10 mins, and turn it back on to see if the compressor will kick in. Also check your temp settings and make sure they are properly set. If that doesnt work, you might have a dead compressor which a tech can look at and verify.
All the wine chiller set 2 temp red and white, red wine temp only for 18- 20 oC , your using white wine don't set red wine temp , set only for white temp mode,white and red wine set temp are different temp
