Arctica not working properly

Hello: My Arctica chiller will not start on its own. If I change the temp setting, it will start cooling to about .5 lower the selected temp then idle. It will reach the ambient temp without kicking back. It will only start again if I change the temp manually. Anyone with more experience know what part of the chiller is bad before I start opening it? Thanks in advance.

A dumb question: can I turn off my chiller completely without disconnecting anything off the system, I mean plugging it off from the power outlet and also doing the same with the pump (which I think is not working as expected)? Will there be any leakage or some water that's inside it returning to the tank? Is there an order of what should be turned off first (pump or chiller)? Can I let just the coel on to monitor the temperature with the probe or it will be turned off when the chiller is turned off?

Need new hose fittings but can't find them anywhere?

I bought a chiller and the maker seems to be out of business (Pacific Coast Imports CL-280) and the previous owner I bought it from just informed me he threw away the old hose fittings. Where can I try to buy new ones that might fit, or more likely, how can I adapt the hose to the chiller without a kit? I feel the chance of getting the fittings are very slim and think I'm going to need to rig something else creative up. Thank you so much!

If you turn off the chiller you can do 2 things, disconnect & drain it, or just let water run through it.
