I've recently bought a cricket bowling machine to practice in the garden, when it arrived i plugged it in and turned it on and nothing happened, i tried plugging it into different sockets, reattaching everything and still no response, i then took a look at the machine itself and i can notice a few of the screws are a little rusty, and the stickers look like they've been attempted to be peeled off, but kind of wrinky, this suggested to me that it had been water damaged, and it was useless. Is there anyway i can confirm it has been water damaged by opening the machine? Also it has warranty until the 15th November this year so do you think it'll cover it.

First you should take photos and send them to the seller and ask for a refund. If they don't respond, or say no, you can open up a dispute with ebay.

Opening it yourself will kill any chance of a return or warranty return, I'd take it up with the seller in the first place as simply not working.

My plan was to go through the manufactuer warranty which expires on the 15th November, send the machine back to him, get him to send it to the manufacturer and go through the replacement (hopefully) and if that doesn't work then I would get a refund from the seller. Would this work?

You are massively overcomplicating this it is hardly contract law question of the year. You were sold faulty goods, use the warranty or return it for a refund.
