The compressor is what causes your cooler to cool down. If the compressor is not working properly, it could cause temperature issues. The compressor may, for some reason, not be getting enough power, and it is not starting properly. Alternatively, it may be overheating, causing it to malfunction.
The capacitor is what causes the compressor to start. It sends a boost of energy to the compressor, and if there are problems with it, it could cause problems down the line, causing your wine to not cool down.
It could be that the fans are not working properly. If even just one of the fans is broken, it could cause the temperature in the entire cooler to go up.
It could also be that the thermostat is broken. Alternatively, the sensors that tell the thermostat the temperature may not be functioning the way they should. They then relate the wrong information to the fans, which then cool down the cooler to the wrong temperature.
