Clean any debris and replace with a new one if needed. Ensuring that the compressor is working optimally is a guarantee that you have a cooling fountain. Check the motor

Identify the problem
Firstly, you need to identify the problem with your water fountain. It could be a problem with the motor, the compressor, or the control switch. A compressor issue can lead to the water fountain not working, and a motor problem may lead to the noise, but not cooling. Typically, if the water in your fountain is staying stagnant, it means that it’s not being circulated in the system. You need to discover and take steps to fix these issues.
Clean the fountain
Before getting to the possible issues of your fountain, it’s important to first ensure that it’s cleaned regularly. The water in the fountain may gather debris over time, which clogs the fountain and makes it stop working. Ensure you regularly clean the pump, tubing, and fountain surfaces to prevent any clogs.
