I recently purchased a used Haier wine cooler. I plugged it in and it doesn't do anything. Even the light inside the unit is not working. It was built in Oct. 2007 , according to the label on the back, so it is less than 1 year old. What do you think is the major malfunction? It didn't cost me much money(at a yard sale),but I was looking forward to using it for a while. Did I make a mistake buying it at all? Help!

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.
If you just want to use the factory settings then push the red or white button depending on what you store the most. Or you can set it yourself by pushing the red and white buttons together for about 3 seconds- the temp display will start flashing-then use the red and white buttons to set the desired temp-then push the set button
HAVE YOU CHECKED THE SWITCH ON THE COMPRESSOR OR THE FUSE ? AND IF THE COMPRESSOR IS KICKING ON CAN YOU HEAR THE BLOWER FAN KICK ON ? IF ALL IS GOOD THEN YOU HAVE A BAD CONDENSOR THAT WILL BE THE NEXT THING TO CHECK
