Yes, you could check for a fuse burnt out, but generally if the windshield washer pump doesn't buzz or turn so you can hear it, it means that in this weather, it is frozen up or burnt out. Usually it's just frozen with summer formulatioin of windshield wiper fluid which freezes at 32 deg. F.
Try to warm up the car in a heated garage to see if the windshield wiper fluid becomes unfrozen.
And, try to flush out the old fluid when you get it the pump free of ice, and install -20 deg. F or better wiper fluid.
Make sure you have water or windshield wiper fluid in the reserve (open your hood and add more, look for a blue plastic cap) if you hear it humming when you turn it on then the pump is working. Also check the little nozzles on the hood (one on each side) and see if they are clogged, stick a small safety pin into the holes and move it in and out to free up ant debris inside that may stop the water from squirting out
follow the windshield spray nasal water lie to the pump making sure the line is not broken, next do you hear the pump running when you spay the fluid, if not that the pump is faulty, if you do hear the pump running, more likely the windshield spray nasal is clog with debris; to unclog it try to use a clothes needle, poke around in it to see if you can clear the blockage, if not, replace will be the best idea, fairly cheap and easy to replace. those windshield tank and the pump does not have good filter on them and they tend to get clog up in the pump or the spray nasal.
