windshield wiper fluid dispenser not working

In my '67 impala i go to press the knob to activate the windshield wiper fluid dispenser and it doesn't turn on, just the windshield wipers do, what could be wrong?

If it is making a noise (pump is working because you here the plunger moving) check the squirters for wax build up clogging the holes. If no noise, then it could be a defective pump (they are made of plastic parts) or the sensing cam is broken (which means the wipers turn off without parking first).
