All coolers produce water as a result of condensation which occurs when air is cooled. The water appears upon the radiator (technically called the evaporator) inside the cold area of the cooler. When the water drips off of the radiator, it is caught by a pan which may or may not be a removable piece. The pan should lean toward the rear of the cooler and the water should pour into a drain tube. The drain tube should lead down into the compressor area of the cooler and deposit the water into another pain which is outside of the cooler where it should evaporate back into the air. Sometimes "cardboard" fins are used to help the water evaporate. Sometimes a pan with a huge surface area is used to help the water evaporate. Other times the pan is literally on top of the compressor. Make sure the cooler itself is level. Make sure room air is able to move over the pan where the water is supposed to evaporate. Make sure the drain hose is not clogged. Make sure pans are not leaking.
If it IS a small compact refrigerator, used as a wine cooler, then it may be "iced up" and just need defrosting, if only part of the coil is iced, it is probably low on gas, or the "condenser" coil on the back (or under) the unit may be dirty, a fan not running, or just too close to a wall and not breathing). It is "doubtful that the thermostat is bad, but just setting it colder will tell, and the "setting" is usually marginal anyway.
If it's a larger unit with a fan or fans inside Like a walk-in cooler, then there are other possibilities
I understand that you are trying to locate a user manual for you Haier BC112G wine coller. I have located the manual on Haier.com the following link will take you to the page then you just have to click on the model of the unit that you have the first one at the top of the page.
It is not really leaking water (did you put water inside?) ... that is probably condensate ... a by product of the cooling process. Are you in a high humidity area? If yes ... that is the primary reason for this water.
Here in North America, we think that only white wine should be chilled and then only to 'celler' temp (or about 55 degrees F.
You may be able to reduce the water problem if
(1) up the temp in the cooler (it isn't a refrigerator - don't use it as one)
(2) don't put 'hot' wine inside
(3) put a small fan blowing on the cooler to help evaporate the condensate.
If the water is a big problem, sit your frig on a big tray, similar to the one you might put under your car in the garge to catch dripping oil.
It may be the drain line is not dripping into the catch bucket under the back side, visually check to see if the line is reaching into the bucket and that it's not clogged up on the inside of the unit floor. The back panel being wet may just be condensation in between cooling cycles as the frost melts. If the unit is OK with keeping temps the refrigerant charge is likely OK.
