Thermal coupling in wine chiller
No, I would not recommend putting water into the chill chamber since if there is a "gap" hole in this compartment, the water could get inside the unit's electronics etc.. which could at the very least short the unit and at worst electrocute you as you take the bottle out/touch the unit. That's the problem with this or any other Peltier/thermoelelectric type of chiller. They are only good for maintaining an ALREADY cold bottle's temperature, not for chilling it rapidly. There is no good or inexpensive way to get better chilling from these types of units. It's the law of themodynamics and heat transfer. Water is the best/safest/most inexpensive medium to use, not chilled air or even super cold air. Cold air or even super cold air just does not match the chilling
potential of a liquid like water. The reason why 50F air is no
problem, for you to be out in for hours, but 50F water you'll get
hypothermia in 20-30 mins.
The best unit for chilling a warm wine bottle is the cooper cooler. Go to www.coopercooler.com. It uses ice and water and sprays the ice cold water over the bottle while spinning it to chill it quickly. This unit is great since it can also chill single serve drinks like beer/soda etc so is more versatile than the other chillers. Cheapest is about $59 which is much less than the waring at ~$100

Waring Portable Ice Machine Schematics
I doubt you will find any schematics for this unit. It should be pretty straight forward anyway. I suspect that uses a solid state plate cooler, and basic schematics for them, and their control board, can probably be found n the internet.

We received a Serta reversible heated throw for Christmas in 2018. After using it 3 times, it suddenly refuses to turn on. Have tried other wall outlets that work with lamps, no luck.
Hello, Richard -
1. I re-categorized your question from the Fixya category for Televisions, where it had initially landed.
2. I found warranty information about the Serta reversible heated throw from online sellers' posted information. Apparently, the throws come with a 1 year manufacturer's warranty.
3. I was unable to find a user's manual / user instructions for any variety of Serta reversible heated throws. I had hoped a user's manual would include Troubleshooting solutions and / or information regarding the manufacturer's warranty.
If you have printed instructions for the heated throw, I suggest you double check the instructions regarding Troubleshooting as well as contacting Serta Customer Service regarding the warranty for your throw.
4. This is the toll free number to call Serta Customer Service:
