SOURCE: error code 12
Error code 12 is a genaric "Flame Failure" code. I suspect that the flame is not hitting the flame sensor or that the sensor is bad. You will need to get to the sensor located on the far left hand side of the unit. If you have the owners manual, it's part #123. Remove it and clean it off. Make sure it is placed back in the heater properly aligned and all the way in. Then try and light it. If it does not stay lit, it may need to be replaced but check out the burner tray for debris not allowing the flame to travel all the way to the sensor. You will have to remove many parts to get to the burner assembly.

Solenoid or the dispenser switch.
The water supply line connects to a water valve on the Ref. this water valve has two solenoids, one for the ice maker and one for the water in the door. Check this solenoid with an OHM meter.
The dispenser switch should send 110 volts to the solenoid. Check at the solenoid while pushing the water switch in the door.

Your cooling unit is shot, I suggest. Most likely, you've lost the R341 refrigerant. Norcold, so they can sell you another cooling unit at $500+, does not make these little fridges with a service port so you can recharge the system. Same with Dometic. Solution is to spend, again, $500+ for a new sealed unit that will fail in relatively short order (I'm on my second in five years) or buy a better refrigerator. I'm opting for a new fridge this go around (Vitrifrigo). Vitrifrigo has the needed service port.

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.
This is a 6 or 8 bottle free-standing wine cooler from what I can tell.
I am not having much luck determining if this is a manual defrost type unit or not. Given the inital sales price now of $79.95 I have to assume it is a manual defrost type.
There are a few things that can cause your problem.
1. PTC relay and KliXon thermal overload assy on the compressor.
2. Run capacitor
3. Temp control
You said the fan does not run so I cab not rule out the temp control.
I can not even find a parts break down of the unit.
With no fan running the very first suspect is the temp control but you can at least listen for a CLICK when you cycle it from off to any other position. If you hear a click I would start looking at compressor start / run parts.
If you have access to your units compressor note the manufacturer, hp if stated (1/8hp etc) and Model number.
Then call or visit your local appliance parts supply store with that information in hand. The will have a PTC relay / KilXon thermal overload AND run capacitor that will fit your unit. I am pretty sure that will get you going again UNLESS you have a broken wire somewhere.
The replacement parts are going to run about 50% of the cost to replace the whole thing.
Thanks for using FixYa!

might be your compressor relay gone bad. if the condenser fan was running and no compressor that could be the case. Also could be a bad compressor. you could try installing a 3in1 start kit. cost about $30. if doesn't start with that then compressor is kaput.
