The wine chiller I\'m working on has a Peltier unit, Emerson Brand and notorius for not cooling. The fans all work, and extra air flow does not help. My questions is: Does the heat sink unit require a certain amount of heat sink grease to be operational? My past experiances with some cooling units was it did matter. When I dis-assembled the heatsink, there was almost no grease between the one side, and none on the other side.

Yes, you answered your own question, more thermal grease required. But do not over-do it else ...!!!
FWIW there are thermal greases and thermal greases. I recommend ShinEtsu Microsi (always).
