OK all the water functions run through the fountain control board. So first unplug the unit for 30 seconds and plug it back in, that should reset the board. Try it and it may work. If it still does not work you need to check to see if there is power to the solenoid behind the unit. There are 2 on the water valve, one for the dispenser and the other for ice. Check to see if the one that goes to the dispenser has 120 volts to it. If it does and you still have no water you can take off the water line that goes out of the valve. Have someone press the dispenser. If water shoots out of the valve the line is frozen somewhere. If it does not check the water source and if that is fine replace the valve. Now if you do not have any power going to the valve check and see if the dispenser switches are working. If they click fine replace the fountain control board.
