My Scotsman wine cooler has suddenly stopped getting cold.

Resolved Question:

My Scotsman wine cooler has suddenly stopped getting cold. The interior light inside still operates correctly but the cooling doesn't. Could this be as simple a repair of replacing the fuse ( size no greater than 85 grams)? Or is it likely the compressor?
If it is the fuse how do I get to it / where to I find it? My model number is XXXXX - 1SC
Serial number 06021320011127

Who do I contact for in-home service? I live in Manhattan Beach, Calif. 90266
