Bought a defective appliance used - any recourse?

Hey all,

Bought an small, industrial dehumidifier from someone locally who advertised it was in perfect working condition, but it's icing up, and I'm not sure what's wrong with it. I've contacted the manufacturer (thankfully Swiss made), and am awaiting their diagnosis. It's out of its warranty period, and I'd be on the hook for any repair costs.

I really didn't buy this hoping to spend more money just to get it working when it was advertised working as new condition.

I have contacted the seller telling them about the issue, and they've actually helped me get in touch with the manufacturer, but I haven't brought up the issue of a refund/return with them until I hear a diagnosis from the manufacturer.

Is the seller under any obligation to return my money for the defective unit? Am I just screwed and stuck with a repair bill?
