Check where the thermostat probe is situated, it has to sit up against the evaporator to tell the thermo it's cold enough & to shut off.

A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
It does a lot of clicking (trying to start over and over again)
If thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
I use part no ERP410 POWER START RELAY, CAPACITOR AND OVERLOAD all in one. (110 v)

Before replacing any part, first try manual defrost procedure. Unplug the wine cooler for approx 4 hours non stop.This will defrost all ice manually and this resets the internal defrost board and its assembly parts.Then after 24 hours reconnect the units power cord and turn it on, set it to normal temperature.It will take approx 6 hours get it normal cooling cycle.Then check, if its still building up ice, then it can be faulty defrost thermostat or faulty defrost main board.By pass the thermostat terminals by connecting a jumper wire.Connect two terminals of thermostat together and then see if its still building ice inside.If yes then board needs to be replaced.The thermostat located near the coils.Its a thin, twin wire connector, connected near coils.---------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.
